Welcome to the hop! I hope you enjoy your visit and take some time to look around at some of the other posts here. I sort of got my days confused with some of the other obligations I have and almost missed today's post. But I got my head on straight and came up with this little ditty. I think it turned out awesome. Now I am just wondering who would guess correctly as to the image I used to create the tree? Well, I'll give you a moment to think about and reveal the image end of this post.
So how do you like it?
Now, if you are participating in the scavenger hunt have A good time! Once you have all the letters make a wish and send it in. Also, while I have you here, take a moment to look around there are lots of posts going live today for several great reasons!
So any ideas as to what image I used to create the tree? Well, would you believe it was this wonderful mini hummingbird from Mike's wonderful collection of images?
I stamped the image out about twelve times, trimmed it up (chopping off it's little head) and piecing it all together, came up with a pretty decent Christmas tree, if I say so myself. To create the tag I used a Bazzil Basics chipboard luggage tag, some of the beautiful paper Mike offered last year, sanded the edges and smudged some gold ink all over it. Then I adhered the tree, painted a black chipboard star from Cosmo Cricket with Gold Krylon paint and attached it also. Then I found this gorgeous green velvet ribbon for the tag hole and tied it off. Next, I used some Ranger White Opal Liquid Pearls for the snow on the tree (just filled in the open area of the birds body) and gold stickles for the ornaments, let it all dry and you have this neat tag! I added a hanger to it and found a spot on my tree.
Thanks for stopping by, I will have some more ornaments posted tomorrow if you would like another idea for trimming your tree. I would love to read your comments. Your next stop is Diana. Oh and in case you have jumped in here - you can visit Hetty's blog for the complete list of stops! ttfn
