Good morning friends...
Hope you're all having a fabulous week so far and you're enjoying this gorgeous sunshine that we have at the moment.
I'm sure all of you know how much fun I've had joining in with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013 and every month, I've loved all the inspiration that Tim has given and this month is no exception. I loved Tim's chalkboard technique on Creative Chemistry 102 and I've got some of that gorgeous embossing powder on my ever growing list of "must haves" but until I get some of that precious powder, I had to think of a way around it and still get the overall chalkboard effect and, I did!! A Versamark ink pad, Perfect Pearls and chalk and ta~dah...here is my entry for the November 12 Tag of 2013 and as always, there's lots of photos to see all the detail and I hope you love my tag!
I didn't have any black tags so die cut my own using Tim's Tag die from Sizzix. The "A Joyful Christmas" stamp that I used is from the Joyful Song stamp set. I created the poinsettias, using Tim's Tattered Poinsettia die from Sizzix and added some holly leaves from the Holly and Branch die. All the die cuts are coloured with Distress Inks and given a spritzing of Perfect Pearls Biscotti Mist. I added some Craftwork Cards Candi to the centres and some rusty wire coils to complete the card.
So, that's it from me for today and if you haven't tried out Tim's chalkboard technique, then you must...it is fabulous and creates such a cool effect!!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another share.
Bye for now...love Emma xxx
p.s. Don't forget that the lovely and very talented Julie Hickey is on Ideal World and Create and Craft throughout today with the fabulous Craftwork Cards Pick Of The Day...it's definitely not to be missed!!!!
