As much as I adore looking at Sir Tim's tags, not all of them are to my taste and so (as well as feeling ill) I have not kept up wth all 11 out of the 12 tags he has promised us. This morning I woke quite early though so I set to and whiped up day 7 tag and day 8 tag.
Tag 7 was fairly simple to duplicate as it was much of the same by way of techniques and masking is fairly old hat although using acetate is a new twist. I used one of my own stamps instead of a santa and I embossed the white swirls ( Rhonna Farrer and Tia Bennet scoll stamps) as I was afraid the problem with the acrylic paint and the distress inks would re-occur.
Tag 8 again simple - in fact probably the easiest so far. I used some rainbow coloured vellum I have had in my stash for years, and a candle stamp (I am not into the metalic bits so didnt bother with the key. The only thing I did different was to colour my leaves and candle with distress stickles which I think gives a better feel to the whole thing.
I am now way behind in my christmas card making so I am not going to bother with the last of his tags, 8 is way more than I have ever managed and I am pleased with myself and the results. I hope I have convinced a few people that Ranger products, although wonderful in themselves, do not NEED to be used to acheive good results.
