My final Tim card for 2016

The year really is racing away now and I have finished my final Tim Card for 2016. This year Tim's tags have all been remix tags of 2 techniques he has shared from the past tags series. I have managed to join in every month and made 12 cards instead of the 12 tags he made.

Here is a collage with snippets of all my entries this year. I always enjoy seeing them all together as I don't keep these cards.They are given as special cards to my friends and family during the year.

You can see Tim's December tag and methods over on his blog here and this is his tag

As often happens I don't own most  some of the products he used. I used a diecut sentiment instead of a shadow press one. As Tim reminds us we need to make our projects our own
 and just use his take as inspiration 😃

I sprayed distress ink through my star stencil onto my hessian to make my background.

I made little tiles/stamps from epehemera, stamps and die cuts. The postage stamp in an old Whimsy stamp and die.

I used his holiday greens dies to make some holly and fir trimmings. Below is my December entry in close up, the eagle eyed of you will have already spotted it in my collage.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tim for all his hard work, inspiration and endless creativity. His is one of my favourite challenges and I really hope that he continues it in 2017.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
