Tag #11 – Sleigh Bells Ring

Published December 11, 2011 by isisimaginings
Happy Sunday to everyone, how’s your weekend going? I’m amazed to say I have finished today’s tag already. It was surprisingly simple & great fun to make.

Firstly, here is Tim’s tag & here is the link to his blog post with all the instructions. Make sure you watch the video. All I will say is – UTEE!!!!My ingredients:Link

  • TH distress inks – Broken China, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire
  • Shrink Plastic
  • UTEE
  • Tattered Angels Glimmer Chips – Sleigh
  • Alcohol inks – Lettuce, Citrus, Espresso
  • White acrylic paint
  • PaperArtsy leaf & flower dies
  • Signo white pen
  • Chocolate Baroque Snowflake glitter

Today was the first time I had used shrink plastic – yet another of those techniques that I keep meaning to try & this morning I had no excuse not to. I’ve seen shrink plastic demoed on TV, but to see the magic happen right in front of me was excellent fun. I actually found myself giggling as the diecuts shrunk.

One of the great things about this experience has been accepting that if I follow Tim’s instructions, I can achieve similar results to his. Okay, they’re not perfect, but for first attempts, they are acceptable to me. From now on, I shall have a lot more confidence & not be afraid to try new techniques & maybe even come up with a few new ones.
Today is one of those Winter days when the light is terrible, so these photos look very washed out. I inked the sleigh with distress inks & added some silver highlights. When I had attached it to the tag, I added a layer of white acrylic paint to the bottom & covered that with glitter – a sleigh has to be in the snow, right?

So that is it for today’s tag. Thank you for visiting. Until next time,

Love & light.
