12 tags of Christmas - 5

Tim Holtz's tag 5 was made of this great acrylic material with a reversed embossing, it was very cool. As with many of his tags this year he's using things I don't have so I am doing my best to achieve the overall appearance none the less. I used white embossing on the stamped images and every color of red distress ink I had for the background. It did come out interesting, but I my have to get some of the acrylic to play with!

Tag 9 uses Tim Holtz's grunged enamel technique. I really like the festive greenery from the die cut too, it real adds a holiday feel. I didn't have the Halloween die that Tim used so I went with the ornament in a metallic silver paper.

12 tags of Christmas - 4

The flurry of snow and the well dressed snowman. I like the date cutout back filled to look like stained glass, what next? Check it all out at Holtz's blog!

12 tags day 3. Again without most of Tim's supplies I have posted my own version of his. I know that is somewhat the ideas, but I do like to make them as similar as possible. This time I embossed and then added colors to the raised words. More fun to come and see others at Tim's Blog.

Tag 2 resist paper, this paper is fun. Even though I didn't have the seasonal version I sorta attempted to sketch in the holly leaves and berries. I gave the reindeer some bells and a touch of antique with walnut ink. See Tim's at his blog along with hundreds of other beauties.

Oh yeah! It's that time of year again. This challenge has become part of my Christmas tradition and I look forward to it and thoroughly enjoy it.  I didn't have most of Tim Holtz's items he used on this but I was able to wing it with what I had and had a lot of fun putting it together. See Tim's original and Linda's originals on their blogs here.
