12 Tags of Christmas

Well you know I wouldn't Miss out on doing Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas. But what to do? I didn't have the rickety house or the fence. So in the spirit of the Christmas season I made a little country Church from Grungepaper and embossed it with the wood texture plate. The rubber stamps are from Artistic Outpost Snowy woods plate. I did use mica in the church windows and added a little alcohol ink to resemble stained glass. I used a wooden picket fence I had in my stash. So come on ladies, You can improvise and still play along.
Theres a 12 Tags of Christmas challenges going on. Stop by  The Artistic Stamper andArtyJen to sign up!

wonderful interpretation. I think I like a church better than a haunted looking house. And the stamp is a great touch. But you know how I feel about postage stamps.

Sarah said...

Great way to improvise, Lynn. Love the church rather than the rickety house. If I get around to doing this one, I will have to improvise, too. I seem to be short on the new T!m stuff.
