Here is my finished Day 2 tag:

This tag took a little longer than I expected because I wasn't happy with the first background that I made, especially the spritzing of the Pearl Mist to get the "snow" effect. Tim makes it look a lot easier than it is .....when I squeezed the bottle and pressed the mister, I got HUGE drops of stuff on the tag that rapidly spread into puddles. Anyhow, I did manage to get some smaller drops on the second background.Another "boo, boo" happened.  The Pearl Mist spray kind of drifted on to my completed reindeer which I thought was sitting far enough away  (maybe because I was pressing the sides of the bottle?) So he is a little sparkly too, but that's a good thing!

I don't have any kraft resist paper, so I used a section of  page from Tim's Idea-ology Seasonal Paper, and stamped the verse merry christmas and postmark before using the Picket Fence paint dauber.

All in all, I'm happy with this one!



  1. Fab tag, don't you just adore all things Tim. Hugs Suzanne

  2. So glad you finally got there Sharon and I have to say I really love the red background which is so warm and cheery - just what's needed in this weather.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  3. Isn't it great when a boo-boo turns out to be beneficial? I think your shimmery background on this tag is awesome. Your reindeer and the garland are beautiful. What a fun tag you have created!
