Tims 12 tags of Christmas Day 4

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for stopping by well i am back for Tim's Tag Day 4 :http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/12/12-tags-of-christmastag-4.html

Today proved quite a challenge as still going along with just using what is in my stash and not purchasing anything and let me just say I never had anything really what he used!! The Snowman is a mask traced round on grunge paper and cut out by hand...... as is the snowflake...... as is the snowflake border ......here it is....

As the mask was a lot smaller than the die must have been i used a smaller tag.....but using smaller snowman brought different troubles....i could not use the numbers to cut a hole in his belly as the die would have cut him in half!!!!! So out with cutting numbers from the chip block alphabet set using lost and found paper stash and then covering them with glossy accents........were there is a will there is a way......I never had half of the distress stains that Tim used either so used stormy sky instead .....hope you like it as i am still loving the challenge of creating without purchase ....i am sure it will get more difficult to do as the days go on .........thanks for looking catch up with you tomorrow .....going to upload Stampotique Designer challenge now  have a great day take care Mandy x
