On The Fifth day of Christmas

....I was already a day behind 'cos it's day 6 now! Here is tag 5 from Tim's 12 tags of Christmas, and I have to say it's my favourite so far. Not a single Timmy stamp in sight I'm afraid, the Santa is Hero Arts, and the holly is Elusive Images. My craft room is so cold now my paint dabbers are solid so I've used embossable tape and tinsel embossing powder around the edges. I didn't have the green crackle paint so I've used mustard seed. Santa's beard has more 'fluffy stuff' on than you can shake a stick at. This comes out every Christmas lol.
 It's the first time I've ever tried to colour metal and I'm really pleased with the effect, and I LOVE the heated organza. I don't remember who's blog I saw it on but they said to heat organza ribbon with a heat gun and it goes crinckly - it looks lovely unless you heat it too much then it melts lol.
I've used a hat pin and some letter beads as I'm running really short on embellishments now - I don't care what the tag is tomorrow, it will have googly eyes around the ribbon 'cos that's all I've got left :o)
Just need to make today's tag now ....
Check out the fab tags on Artyjen's Tim's Splinter Group to see how they should have turned out, and also Jennie's blog at the Artistic Stamper as her challenge this month is Christmas.
Thanks very much for looking x
