Tim's 12 Tags, Neelz style Day 1 and 2

Well, I finally managed to get my tags finished for day 1 and 2. I was wondering if I should post or not but then thought that I always enjoy seeing everyone elses take on it so here are mine....
I do not have the house so cut my own out of textured grunge (A bit smaller than I should) The same with the picket fence. The tree is my own design filigree lazer cut. I don't have many christmas stamps so used an adage tag. The wreath I made with green embroidery threads covering a template I made, I decorated it with gems and a bow. The tag was done as per Tim's instructions and I used the same tec hnique he used on the house except I did not slice it into logs!

I used mica in the window but coloured it with alcohol inks in oranges. I used an ultrafine glitter for the snow effect

Day 2 tag was more of an interpretation! I do not have the felt so I just dabbed my ink pads onto the stamp! and embossed. The base tag was done in a similar way to his, I used a flower embellishment as I had no bird and used some chain on the ribbon.
 I still like it though and hope you do! If you are doing them too I am sure you are enjoying them as much as I am! Now onto tag number 3! I'm also entering this into the Artistic Stamper Challenge.
Be blessed

Hi Neil, love both your tags and all your improvising is fabulous. You've used my favourite grungeboard pattern on the first and the wreath is gorgeous.
