Tag Number Six

I can't believe it already halfway for Tims' Twelve Tags of Christmas. I do have that reindeer die, but not the tree, so the antlers are just cut out. I really like the idea of inking the embossing folder first, a fab effect. My reindeer is minus greenery, and I am just hopeless at tiny bows, that must be abou my 15th attempt!!. Today I also got in a terrible tangle with the tissue tape. It was totally out of control, and just did its own thing,and wouldn't stick where I wanted it to.
I have to own up to being very tempted to use a tag today that I had posted a couple of weeks ago for the last CCC challenge, but had to try out those new techniques, and I'm really glad I did. I would never in a million years have thought of inking the embossing folder. Anyway, now I'm going to have a go at the next tag.

I did a workshop last Saturday and one of the things I taught was to ink the negative side of the embossing folder. It gives a wonderful result as you have found out.
Best wishes
