Tag #12

Took me 3 days, but I made my version of T!m's Tag #12 of his 2011 series 12 Tags Of Christmas.
For the word WISE I used grungeboard letters, one I painted black, the top one I heat-embossed with silver embossingpowder. For the background I stamped the text, then put a wash of white acrylic over it, tissuetape (I used self adhesive and crumbled it while putting it on the tag) and smeared a layer of Iridescent Medium over it to make it shine. The men (only one is visible, the other I stamped on the back, don't know why, really....) I stamped on a dominostone.

Also for the challenge on Simon Says Stamp And Show.

donderdag 15 december 2011


Made for the Art Journey Challenge #16 Theme Winter.
For the background I used several Blue Distress Inks and splattered water on it (like Tim's Tag #11 in the Christmas Tag series 2011).
Then stamped the Friends and a few times the Ornament (these I heat-embossed with silver embossing powder).
Used the edge-scraper and heat-embossed the edges with silver as well.
Finished with snowflake eyelets and blue crystals.

SDC44 Shimmer, Glimmer, Glitter & Glitz.

Stampotique Challenge:
Inspired by T!m's Tag 9 for the background......... wow, heat-embossing 3 to 4 times gets your fingers hot!
Yesterday arrived Twinkie (thanx again for winning the challenge a while ago!!) used with some shining stars and underneath sprinkled some glitter 'drowned' in glossy&crackle accents. It's for sure a shimmery, glimmery, glittery tag!!! Difficult to scan though. Maybe I'll try to take a photo tomorrow.

T!m's tag #11

My turn on tag #11............quite like how it turned out....

12 tags of Christmas - tag 9

I have been working on Mr. T!m's tag #9 today.
Wow, I do so love this way of creating a background, simply stunning.......
Still busy with 2 others, I used different colours on them, but I want to show my Parisian one now...Not a Christmas theme though....more a romantic one  ;-))
I used rub-on letters for AMOUR and put glossy accents on them. I took a chance with stamping the Eiffeltower on the background as this was twice embossed, but luckely it worked !

TIO #107 Time Changer

For the challenge on Dragonsdream - Tag It On - I made this Steampunk Tag. I was inspired by T!m's 12 days of Christmas Tag #8.

12 tags of christmas....tag 8

I am following - as many of you do - T!m's 12 tags of christmas but today was the first time I managed to create a tag to my satisfaction. Since I don't have a die cut machine and embossingfolders it was hard to think of other ways to make the tags 1 to 7. BUT... today T!m made me very happy with his steampunk tag!
Been working all day, made 3 tags, will show one of them here on my blog. I had so much fun today!!
Also entering on Inspiration Journal.

For the challenge on Less Is More.
I dropped some alcohol ink (Meadow) on glossy cardstock and used an airbrush to blow it around. I didn't think it needed anything else but various colours of green cardstock and some bradlets to finish.

Decorated box

In a Christmas style for the challenge on Make My Monday.
I took a cigarebox, covered it with gesso and then put drops of alcohol ink (green, red & some gold) on it.
Inside I glued some Christmas wrappingpaper and a winterpicture.
On top I glued stamps from received Christmascards.
