TIM'S 12 TAGS OF CHRISTMAS 2010 - #9

Didn't he excel himself today! I absolutely adore today's tag. The colours are beautiful and the whole design is so special, even though it meant making baubles again and getting out the perfect pearls.
It proved a bit fiddly but I got there in the end.
Not sure which photo looked the best, so I've included both. I didn't have the letter die that Tim used, but this one worked ok. Whilst I was cutting the letters, the 'w' partly cut. I thought it looked like a crown so I painted it with a silver dabber and used it above the heart. I used dotty white ribbon which I coloured as stated and then crinkled it with a heat gun. The fibres behind the rosette were a freebie from craft obsessions. Also mopped all my spare ink up with card cut to ATC size, so have loads of backgrounds now. Waste not, want not eh?
Popping over to Artyjen and the Artistic stamper to link my tag.
