Tags 3 & 4...

I am trying to catch up with the 12 Tags of Christmas and
finally finished tags 3 & 4 seen above. It has been really
busy here the last few days and I haven't even started on
my December Daily project yet!!

The good and bad of these tags is that I found the tissue tape
flower on tag 3 a real pain to do, my tape just did not seem to
stick and kept coming off, had to re-do it and then glue it all
together. It looked so much fun and so easy to do, not sure if
I will attempt it again.

Now the Tim Holtz Facet that was part of the technique for
tag 4 was something I thought would not work for me but
amazingly it did!!
I love the effect of using alcohol ink to do a resist. If you
have no idea what on earth I am talking about then
go here and read all the details from Tim himself.

Hoping that I can get tags 5 & 6 done tomorrow and
then I will only be a day behind :)

I love these...seriously! How does Tim come up with this stuff??? I just checked out that ink resist thing he did with the facets...so so cool!

I can't wait to see the next ones that you do, I loved Tim's and it is so fun to see your take on them!! Go Marlene!!
