Your shaving cream background is magnificent, Loll! How beautiful the silver tree looks against your gorgeous colors! Love that tree! I also love the die cut hills, something I always forget to include. What a gorgeous tag!

The background is so beautiful!! I was so surprised to see you used shaving cream!! Gorgeous tag!! Loved looking at all of your tags!!

My favourite marbling colours Loll with that gorgeous turquoise and green and the contemporary TH tree is just perfect and a beautiful dyed ribbon to match. I love that really pretty scene on Linda's tag, and the deer with the white embossed snowflakes and pine branch and berries and the background with that little sprinkling of white embossing powder snow gives it that extra wintry feel. I have enjoyed all twelve days of fabulous creativity. x

Susan said...

Beautiful marbled background for the silver tree - what a lovely colour combination! I'm sorry to see the twelve days come to an end as I've looked forward to seeing all of your tags again, and seeing the GDs' tags for the first time! I'm off to check out Linda's blog for more info on her fabulous tag.

Thank you, Lolly, for another mega-inspirational tag event and for asking me to be a part of it!

Oh my gosh! Both tags are stunning! I love the shaving cream technique. The marbling effect you got on this tag is beautiful. That tree in silver looks amazing on top. Wow. And the scene on the second tag. Well, that just blows me away. What a gorgeous view. That reindeer is fabulous. I'm just so very impressed with what can be done on tags. Thanks for opening my eyes to the possibilities! :)

Marcia Hill said...

Another beautiful, beautiful tag Loll!! And I can't believe it's over! I look forward to these 12 days all year and then it goes by SO quickly!! Every tag this year by you and your guests were just absolutely STUNNING and I loved and was inspired by each one! Thank you so much for doing this each year Loll...I know it's a LOT of work for you, and I just want you to know how much I appreciate it! :0)

What a beautiful marbled piece, Loll! I love the streaks of color! And that tree has turned my head and it fell into my shopping cart. All your tags were so inspiring! Thanks for giving me the excuse to have some tag fun!

Brenda said...

I really need to get me some shaving cream Loll, I just love the way your background turned out! That kinda mimics the Northern Lights to my eye! I just love that beautiful tree die too, it looks so cold and wintry in the silver. Hugs, Brenda

TK said...

That tag is stunning! Love the Seahawks colors you used on it (ok, that's probably just MY take on it), but the marbling and that die are gorgeous!

Your silver pine tree is the perfect element with your shaving cream technique, Loll! I love all the swirls that you created and the colors are just beautiful! Linda's tag is also gorgeous...Love how she created her winter scene!

Donna said...

Beautiful tag, Loll.
Wish I had got it together to play along this year, but my tags for Tracey's challenge wouldn't do this challenge any justice at all. Sighs... maybe this time next year. X

What a beautiful background, Loll ... puts me in mind of the Aurora Borealis ... love that it can be seen through the delicate silver tree! Hugs, Anita :)
