Day 3

Just finished my tag for Day 3, but I think I need to pick up some pine needles.  I don't have the holiday leaf die that Tim's been using, and without the holly and pine, it's just missing something.  I was able to do part of his technique of using the Cut 'n Dry felt to make my own stamp pad, but I didn't have his Christmas stamp with matching embossing folder.  I used this retired background stamp from Stampin' Up!, and it worked OK, but I couldn't follow up with embossing the stamped words.  I decided since I couldn't emboss the words, I'd 'highlight' a couple of holiday words by taking my AquaPainter and coloring over 'Joy' and 'merry' to make them stand out.

Here's a look at Tim's tag:
You can kind of see that the words "Seasons Greetings" are embossed.  I think these sets of stamps with embossing folders is a really cool idea, but they're just not in the budget now.  Maybe I'll win some or something.  lol

It's still kind of early, so I think I'm going to try & play catch up and get today's tag done as well.
