My apologies for not posting this yesterday. Emma had her Holiday Band Concert last night. They sounded fabulous!
When I saw Tim's Tag #8 I got very excited. Collaged layered stamped tags are something that I have long been a fan of. I've mentioned in the past that I started my crafting life as an avid rubber stamper. I have an impressive collection of odd quirky stamps, and any chance I get to pull them out and use them on a project thrills me! Knowing that I didn't have Tim's specific "men in hats" stamp nor the pointing hand stamp, I went looking for substitutes from my own collection:
It was amusing to be reminded of how I organized these stamps years ago into CD cases. I mean, apparently I can fill an entire case with "People - Women Distressed"! And let me just clarify something - "distressed" does not mean these stamps have grungy edges. It means that the women are, in fact, DISTRESSED!
No distresssed ladies or leaping dudes made it onto my Tag #8, but apparently I own all the supplies to stamp out the "12 Day of Christmas" with some creative license on the lyrics:
...10 Lords a Leaping, 9 Ladies Screaming . . .
Here is my finished Tag #8:
Just a couple of notes - the "JOY" letters are an old Sizzix die (#656277 but it's retired) that I cut from black shrink plastic and shrunk. I'm probably going to use the "PEACE" letters from that same die on my Tag #9 later today. Although my supplies are from my stash, I generally followed Tim's instructions for the tag background and antiquing the gears. You can find a link to his tag below:
