12 Tags of Christmas Snowman

Here is the second tag I made using Tim Holtz ideas. I had to adapt the background for this tag by using faded jeans distressing ink and seafoam embossing powder this give the background the feel of snow. I then stamped with snowflake stamp and embossed. The snowman was made using faded jeans ink and then embossed with seafoam powder. I used the buttons on the snowman and added a punched out snowflake to his hat. Really enjoyed making this tag and learned alot of how to adapt using different methods. To complete I added a little silver edged lace for a trim.

12 Days of Christmas Tags

Well I tried to attempt a couple of the wonderful tags Tim Holtz has been creating. This is my adaptation of the Reindeer tag. The background was a paper and inked using the walnut stain distressing ink, then I used the clear embossing ink and added seafoam embossing powder to give the effect of snow. I then stamped in clear embossing ink some snow flakes and covered with the seafoam embossing powder and heated. I found a reindeer and used the walnut distressing ink to give him some colour and shadow. The neck tie was a christmas pipe cleaner and added a bell. The holly leaves I cut out from paper and coloured. Then added a tiny tag for decoration. The base is a piece of grunge board and used some coloured brads for decoration. Really enjoyed making this tag. My attempt at the snowman was not as good but will add it here.
Happy Crafting and a Merry Christmas to all
