Twelve Tags of 2013- December. The Final Tag of the Year !

Well I've made it to the end of Tim's wonderful Twelve Tags of 2013 Challenge with only a day to spare ! As always Tim has shown us some fabulous ideas and brilliant techniques. Over the year, I've had several favourites and I shall certainly be adding this last one to the list! I've never used Tim's Frosted Film or Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art, prior to making this tag, and I can see I've been missing out. They work brilliantly together and I'm already thinking of other possibilities. That, I think, is the essence of the Twelve Tags Challenge, it's a chance to get to grips with the products and to either treat it as a tutorial, following Tim's instructions to the letter, or to use the basic idea and improvise with the supplies you have and take it in whichever direction you wish. I've used the Tattered Florals Die and made a 3d flower in place of the Tattered Poinsetta, which has been very elusive this season; I've yet to get my hands on one ! Still the Tattered Florals remains one of my all time favourites and I'm so looking forward to getting the big one ! So may I wish all my lovely blog friends, as well as the lovely Tim and Mario, A Very Happy New Year !

  1. Hi Toni, it looks so beautiful with the tattered florals die and I love the addition of the gems on the sentiment - such a lovely touch. Like you I have been unable to get the poinsettia die either - maybe next year? Happy New Year to you and thanks so much for all your wonderful inspiration this year. Hugs, Anne x
