Tim's tag no 8, Neelz take

Hi there; wellI have to say that this tag turned out very differently than Tim's; About the only thing in common is the technique!
I did not have the mask he used so decided to use the bird die. That was fun but I managed in the end with the help of a lot of post-its! I used my own street scene again, well parts of it anyway. Then I realised I had done my tag the opposite way so my corners were "wrong" So I had to rethink a bit. In the end I sat looking at it and thought that the bird was too small and the tag just was not working for me; what to do? Lightbulb moment!!!!! I had the daisy cuts from day 7 tag doing nothing so I used that, added some wire to tie in with the chimney smoke and job done. Much better... The to all a good night was done in clear on my dymo printer and stuck to canvas, distress stickle on the clock face as I did not like the white on this tag.

 An interesting tag to do; bu I know that for next year I had better get some masks, father christmas stamps, reindeer dies... the list goes on!
Be blessed in your art today
