"12 Tags of 2012"

Hi folks...time to play along at "12 Tags of 2012"...no way was I leaving for Birmingham without having a go at November's tag.
Here's Tim's fabulous Fall tag...
and here's mine...another headless chicken...dashing around like a cat with a scalded bum "mega adapt and overcome" version...


A bit sombre for my liking...I can't begin to tell you how tempted I was to add some of Tim's fabilicious new Clear Rock Candy Dry Glitter...had to pull every inch of willpower out of the bag and I beg the answer to the question...why after following the technique to the letter does my snowflake look as dull as dishwasher compared to Tim's crisp and bright version but I ran out of time to have another go...
I'm off to raid the wardrobe and get my suitcase packed...the normal grungy Distress Ink nails have been given a sparkly Christmas ruby slippers make-over...we've had a "temporarily shutting up shop" tidy up in the cubbyhole and it will be early to bed tonight for tomorrow's 5.00am alarm call...crikey even that's too early for this "up with the birdies" girl but I'm really looking forward to my Fiskars Holibobs...after months of frantic crafty deadlines...5 days of no household chores...yummy breakfasts...meeting up with lots of crafty buddies and feet up fun evenings wining and dining with the Fiskars girlies are going to do wonders for my crafty soul.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

I like your muted version & snowflakes aren't always crisp & shiny - yours is a real life version. Take care with the travelling & enjoy the wining & dining.

Hi Kath, it does not look dull as dishwater to me, it really leaps off the tag and the whole tag is a gorgeous take on Tim's tag. Hope you have a lovely time!! Crafty hugs, Anne x

gorgeous colours Kath - just beautiful - love the texture too! Hugs rachel x

Kat said...

Gorgeous tag Kath, I think it's just as lovely as Tim's.

Sounds like you're going to have a busy day before you set off for the NEC. Sounds like a few fun, if busy days for you. No housework for 5 days sounds pretty good to me.

Have a great time and don't work too hard! Hope Buddy can look after Dad for you while you're away.

Jennifer said...

Love your tag, Kath...a very arty creation. It certainly doesn't look like dishwater to me!

Have a great time away, I'm sure you will enjoy it immensely. I just hope Buddy doesn't miss you too much.

Hugs,
Jennifer. x

Oh I beg to differ. You tag does not look dull at all. I love the interesting faded/subdued look and it's what attracted me to want to click on your thumbnail. Love how your colours blend so nicely together and the detail shot of the snowflake showing the blue halo in parts make this technique look really cool. Hope you had a lovely Fiskars Holibob.

ceparie said...

Tim's background value is pretty dark which contrasts more and so makes the wheat look lighter and brighter. I expect that if you darkened the area behind the snowflake it would then appear as his does. Nicely done, just the same.

Nancy B said...

Oh so creative and beautiful your tag is!
