Tim's 12 days of Christmas - Rickety House

As all of you lovely Tim fan knows every year he does a challenge The 12 Days of Christmas tags.

Over on the Docraft forum Sue who likes nothing better than Playing with Paper challenged us to join in.

So here goes with day 1 if you pop over to Tim's blog you can see what he created. I was a little overwhelmed when I saw it and had to have a think, but thank goodness for crafty friends. The postie arrived this morning with a little brown envelope full of TH die cuts from the lovey Kay aka Craftyspider. Low and behold there were some of the great big tags and rickety houses, so thank you Kay.

I've used the batik technique for the background using distress inks in tumbled glass, stormy sky and broken china, distressed and embossed around the edges. The house was embossed with the brick folder and inked in fired brick, and lots of rock candy stickles and glamour dust. The wreath was made using a McGill pine branch punch and Viva pen for the berries.

I really enjoyed making this and can't wait for tomorrows.
