totallllly FORGOT!!

I was looking through the memory card for my camera and found the picts I had taken as a tutorial for my Christmas Tag!! I SOOOOOOO forgot about it in all the hubbub of the season!!!

Grab a cup of warm cocoa, cup of java or a glass of wine......
whatever suits your fancy and check it out...a bit long but I wanted to get it all in!!!

I cut a tag from a piece of Kraft Resist Paper. Using various Tim Holtz snowflakes, I stamped on the tag with Embossing Ink and embossed with White Utee.

I then covered the tag with Picket Fence Distress Stain.

When dry I added a layer of Faded Jeans.

Next, I stamped on the tag with another Tim Stamp and Black Soot Distress Ink.
When finished, I wet the end of a towel and cleaned the ink from the snowflakes.

I pulled out my handy dandy tear it up.....Distrezz it All and went to town!!!

Using Chipped Sapphire, I inked the torn up edges.

Using the Distressed Doily die, I cut from dictionary paper,
scrunched it in the middle and stapled it using my Tiny Attacher.

I used Tim's Kraft Glassine Tutorial from Tag #8 using Lettuce & Meadow Alcohol Inks, along with Gold Mixitive and Blending Solution.......all on Glassine paper!!
I do wish I had his Holly Branch Die but sadly I don't. So, I made my own holly leaves.

I then used my Tattered Leaves die and a piece of Crinoline and cut 5 leaves.
I trimmed them down a tad as my Poinsettia would have been to large for my tag.

Using my Barn Door Reinker Mixture, I spritz the leaves to saturation.

I created a puddle of Aged Mahogany Distress Stain and dipped the edges of the wet leaves in it.

After drying the leaves, I folded the bottom end and stapled it to give the leaves dimension.

I punched a small circle from the left over Glassine paper dabbed on some Studio ~ Multi Medium and compiled my flower....using Multi Medium as needed.

I pulled out a few pieces of mini chipboard and dabbed on some gold paint.

I adhered most everything to the tag with Multi Medium!!

and there you have Merry Christmas tag

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial!!

Merry Christmas and a VERY HAPPPPPY New Year to all!!!

This is a great tutorial! I've heard other people talk about the crinoline. After seeing you use it, I will have to get some and see what I can do with it.
Have a fantastic Holiday.
