Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas 2010, #5

Yes, yes, I know I've missed out #2, 3 and 4! What can I say? There aren't any Timtag police looking over my shoulder so I figure I'm pretty much free to suit myself :)

Quite a few differences with this one again - I didn't like the technique where white paint was dabbed over the stamped image of Santa, so I stamped mine separately, to keep the beard white and then stuck it in place, after colouring it with Promarkers. I didn't have the green label die thingy, or the metal flowers or the metal 25, so I cut substitutes for them all on the Cricut.

Oh, and at the last minute I realised I'd forgotten the strip of music paper, so there's just a bit of that. I know, I should have looked at the original more often during the process, but the microwave dinged and I had to get my chilli out. (Did you know that the Welsh for microwave is something like "pingety ping"? They said so on tv last week. Isn't that great? I'd love to speak a language that let me say pingety ping from time to time :) Oh, and I can't find my stickles. None of them. Hence the bling-free holly. Anyway, stop picking holes in it, I did my best. Tim doesn't want me to follow him slavishly you know, he wants me to be inspired and go my own way, whatever that is.

In case you hadn't noticed, the centre of the flower is identical to the outer, except smaller. That's me, playing with ideas of scale. And you thought there was no thought behind this stuff :) As ever, click on the image for a better view! :)

FAB tag - tis... tidy! Yes, you are right... it is popty-ping - popty is oven and the ping, well I guess that is self explanatory!! My Grannie was Welsh and it was her main language so I could waffle on extraordinarily at you in Welsh but that would just be daft cos you wouldn't understand me... cariad ROFL x
