12 Days of Tags - Day 6

Behind once again, and improvising too!  So where's day 5 you ask?  I'm hoping to post that one later today along with day 7.  On to day 6...I worked on this tag last night, so imagine my surprise when I see Tim's tag for day 7 and he created a poinsettia, so needless to say, you'll be seeing another tag from me with a poinsettia done Tim's way!

Not having the Embossing Folder or Dies Tim used for Day 6, I had to get creative, besides it's all about trying the technique, right?  Here I used the Snowman Folder in place of the trees, and I created a Poinsettia using Heartfelt Creations Perfect Petals Die, in place of the beautiful Reindeer which is on my "need list".

To created the Poinsettia, I cut the Perfect Petals Die from Grungeboard (note it did not cut all the way, but made a deep enough cut that was easy to trim out with scissors.  Then followed Tim's directions for the reindeer substituting with Red Pepper Paint and another Texture Fades Folder.

I'm playing along at The Artistic Stamper Challenge  and at ArtyJen.
