Tag 6

Well if this had been the first tag I don't think I would have started as I do not have any of the elements except the splatter stamp.  The back ground is a piece of Paperartsy paperand a crafty individual flourish stamp.stamped with the splatter stamp and white and then gold acrylic paint. I am reasonably proud of my reindeer as I drew him on some grungepaper and cut him out, the antlers are bits of the offcuts.Trees are also freehand cut out. Don't have the tissue tape so used a bit of lace and some music ribbon, the wreath round his neck is a bit of glitter pipecleaner and a bit of sparkly braid, the ribbon bow would not stick to it so stuck it at the top instead. the Joy charm is a metal brad charm from The Works and (whisper it) I did not have any tiny brads for the sentiment so used peel off dots.  Now I have to go and make a card I need to post tomorrow and is 11-15pm already so don't think I will have time to visit other blogs tonight will have to leave it until tomorrow. Many thanks to all who have commented. 


  1. Oh wow Joan how talented you are to freehand all those wonderful trees and reindeer. Brilliant work my friend. Annette x

  2. I really struggled too, but I love how you achieved yours, it is fantastic.

  3. Really gorgeous Joan. Just love your improvising. I hardly had any of the stuff either.

  5. Wow, you drew out the reindeer on your own? I'm very impressed. I just love your take on Tim's inspirational tag. The joy embellishment at the top and the music strip at the bottom really are the perfect touches.(Now go make that card:)

  6. What an elegant variation on the tag - fabulous hand made reindeer too - thankyou for sharing xxx
