Days 2 and 3 of 12 Days of Tags

Hello all! I say all as if I have a ton of visitors, lol, one can wish can't she? Anyhow, so first I want to share some fun news! My DH surprised me with the new Verizon Blackberry Storm this evening, he spoils me so! I think it was meant to be one of my Christmas presents but my DH can never wait to give me my gifts on the day of. While my new phone was charging I decided to work on the tags for day 2 and day 3 of Tim's 12 days of tags. I think they turned out OK, I had a little bit of trouble with the silver and so on my third try I decided to leave off the speckling he did on his. I want to buy the tool he used to do his, I used an old toothbrush and it sprayed way too much on it. So, the tag with the tree is from his day 2 and the one with the snowman is day 3. I don't have all the supplies he calls out so I made do with what I had. If you want to go see how his turned out click here. On day 3's tag he said to be sure to coat the back side of the acrylic oval completely before laying it on the image and I thought I had but when I pressed it some areas didn't seem to have enough coverage. What is cool about that tag is that he had us stamp the image on the tag with just black. Then stamped the same image on a second tag, it is on that tag that I added color then cut it out and placed it on top of the black image for the pop of color.
Well hope you have had a great week, it is almost over and then we get to continue the work on our house....oh joy.
