12 Tags of Christmas 2010 Day 7

Ok, the best laid plans, right?
I fully intended on catching up today but....
On to day 7

I really, really love the inking the texture fade technique. This made the most realistic looking wood I could have ever imagined.
Reversing the petals of the flower is perfect to make a poinsettia. Not having any sticky back canvas I used some canvas inkjet print paper instead.

I inked green leaves also but by complete mistake I felt the backs actually looked more like real petals of a poinsettia.

Hopefully I can catch up tomorrow...


  1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who's behind! And always says they're going to get caught up .. and don't. *lol* I WILL this weekend ... What's Scarlett's line in GWTW? "I can't think about this now. I'll go crazy if I do. I'll think about it tomorrow."
    Yeah, that's my story ...
    These tags, as always, are wonderful!

  2. Wonderful tags, and your poinsettias came out great!
    PS Do you feel any better? I can't get rid of my cold!

  3. Lovely tags!, I agree with you about thetechnique; it's fab. I enjoyed so much I made 2 tags as well (but unlike you, I am not doing that for all)

  4. Gorgeous! These flowers were just ingenious on Tim's part, weren't they!
