Tim's December Tag

Hello everyone, and thanks for dropping by! So I thought my previous post would be my last before Christmas, and then I remembered I had not posted my Tim tag for this month, so just a quick post to show you my version:
Now Tim's original, like always can be seen HERE. I loved his December tag, but apart from the sprays and, inks and greenery, I don't have any of the things he used, so I just did my own version, sticking to my usual size 8 on top of size 10 tag.
My reindeer is from Tando Creative, as I don't have the die Tim used.
I glittered my deer, but without the help of the tea gadget that Tim used, I just sprinkled it on some glossy accents. As I don't have the tinsel, my little bells are just tied around his neck with some white string.

I cut and coloured my greenery pretty much like Tim showed, but arranged it slightly differently and added some tiny red berries for a little patch of colours.
My size 10 tag was embossed with  a snowflake embossing folder and then sprayed and inked like the little one.
At the top I added the month again, as I have done every month this year. And I also added the word journey, a theme rather big for me right now, in more ways than one. (It also happens to be the only word die I own...) I glittered it like the deer, which like usual is hard to see on the photo.
Well, that's it pretty much. Wishing you all a great season, hope you will find some time to relax and be creative too!
I am adding this to Tim's tag challenge of course.
Thanks for visiting like always

  32. Completely beautiful take on the December tag, Astrid - the colours are heavenly - so soft and ethereal, with that hit of the red berries. The snowflake background is fabulous, and I love the tiny bells around the neck of your subtly sparkling deer.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
