Tim Tags day 4&5

I have been keeping up with the tags...just not the blogging.

Day 4 

I love love love Tim's incredible tag for day 4 and i actually had most of the stuff for it. 
I didn't have his distress stains in blues though...or picket fence.  So this is how I did the background.
I smooshed a few bluey coloiur on my craft sheet and then added a few pounces of snow cap paint dauber on there. THEN becuase it needed to be quite a bit more wet, I actually poured about a half tsp. of Tattered Angels mist in pearl on there, and then dragged my tags through.  I did a bunch of tags at once, so as not to waste the beautiful pearly stuff!
I sub'd his scroll work border for snowflakes becuase I didn't have the flakes.   And in the absence of the "25" die, i used his metal numbers stamped with a music bar stamp from one of his tiny sets.
I think that about covers it.

Day 5

I love his tag for day 5 but I didnt' have the right stuff.  So I improvised, but I picked a poor was just too detailed to give the bold effect he achieved.  I used a new Catalina Wreath die in silver from Memory Box, with some pearls for the wreath.

thanks for looking!
