Joining in with Tim's 12 tags of 2015!

Morning friends, hope you're all well & warm!
It's a cold, frosty morning here on the Yorkshire Coast so I don't think
I'll be venturing too far! A big hello & welcome to my 2 new followers,
thanks so much for joining me!
I've wanted to join in with Tim's 12 tags of .......for a while now and 
so decided that 2015 is gonna be the year........there's a fantastic
tutorial over on Tim's blog. All is explained so well & there's a product
list too.........although you don't have to rush out & buy it all, you can use
whatever stash you have. I started with a plain tag and stamped on it
using a script stamp then covered it with a layer of glue & seal. Then I 
covered it with some tissue paper scrunched up in places for texture.
I used vibrant turquoise and melted chocolate Dylusions, I think I was a
bit heavy handed with the spray as it turned out a bit darker than I
planned.....but I do quite like it! I used elements of the alpha parts, covered 
the '5' with tarnished brass distress glitter and the words with the
tarnished brass distress stain. I added chit chat stickers & used a black
distress marker to smudge around the edges. Lastly, I dotted the whole tag
with a white signo uni ball pen..........and phew, that's it!
I loved making this & can't wait for February's!
Rightio, housework awaits.....thanks for calling, see you soon!
