Tag #4 – The Challenge Continues

Published December 4, 2011 by isisimaginings

Greetings, I hope your weekend was a pleasurable one. I’m sitting here with inky, paint stained fingers, feeling the need for sleep & trying to compute that in FOUR weeks time it will be the first day of 2012. Yesss…………………

Let’s quickly move on to today’s tag. I have to say I am enjoying making these tags, I’ve never made so many before & I now understand the fascination. Tim has not one, but two tags on his blog today. He used the same techniques, but with different colours & they are gorgeous. You can see them HERE.

My version took only one attempt today & it ended up having quite a lot of bling, probably in reaction to the relative simplicity of tag #3 yesterday. Here are the ingredients:

  • Distress inks – Weathered Wood, Iced Spruce, Stormy Sky, Broken China
  • Distress stickles – Clear Rock Candy
  • Distress crackle paint – Clear Rock Candy
  • Distress stain – Picket Stain
  • Chocolate Baroque ‘Fat Robin’ Collection – Snowflakes
  • Tattered Angels Glimmer Chips – Snowman
  • PaperMania – Tinsel trim
  • Sizzix Alphabet Dies ‘Broadway Melody’ – 2 & 5
  • Crealies Flower Die – Snowflake
  • Stampers Anonymous TH Collection ‘Sketch Elements’ – Swirl


I can’t find the Crealies die to tell you the exact details of it, will edit this post later when I find it. It’s a terrific die, but I discovered today that it does not cut through acetate/scrap plastic. To make the snowflake border I cut out each snowflake with scissors, then cut in half & attached the pieces to the tag with a strip of double-sided tape. I used adhesive gems from my stash to cover the joins. Now that I have a blister on my thumb, where the handle of the scissors was pressing against, I want Tim’s dies more than ever.

I’m going to finish here, my bed is calling me – loudly. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is visiting my blog from the link on my tag on Tim’s blog. I very much appreciate you taking the time. I’m visiting as many as I can each day & it is great to see every one’s ideas. I’m looking forward to the Christmas break when I can, with luck, actually have the time to leave comments.

Until tomorrow then,

Love & light.
