a tag......a tag!!!

So.....did you follow Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas???
If so......there were some very way cool techniques share!!
if not.....you need to pop on over for a gander!!!

Cause........the challenge for the next two weeks.....over at
Simon Says Stamp and Show
is......
Tim and Tags!!!


My tag has a little bit of this and a little bit of that from Tim's Tags. 

I really enjoyed tag #8 and the way he created
the holly leaves using the Glassine paper with Alcohol inks!!
Check out the tutorial here!!

I created my own tag by using a piece of paper from Tim's ~ Kraft Resist Paper and the Tag and Bookplate die. Using Distress Embossing Ink and White UTEE, I created the snowflakes.
With Picket Fence and Faded Jeans Distress Stains, I covered the tag.
Next, I inked up my music stamp with Black Soot and stamped the tag. 



  Can you see that I used the Distressed Doily ~ On the Edge die again!! This time I cut it out of dictionary paper, squinched it in the center, stapled it using the Tiny Attacher.....
Can't get enough of that die!!!

Love the Maya Road Mini Chipboard covered with Metallic Gold paint!

What better way to distress up the whole creation........
then with the Distress it All!!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
