Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas Tags


Day 6 -made a tag today stamping on acetate. Used one of my favourite stamps a robin stamp by Linda Luckin. Stamped this on acetate using black stazon inkpads. Then coloured in the back using alcohol inks. Once this had dried lightly painted over parts of the acetate which I wanted to highlight around the robin and around the edge of the acetate. Let this dry. For the tag background rubbed some distress inkpads on a craft sheet and spritzed with water. Rubbed tag on this and dried with heat gun. Then stamped a misletoe stamp in corner in peeled pain distress inkpad and stamped music stamp on the remainder of the tag in black inkpad. Stamped misletoe inkpad again over previous stamp in black to create shadow effect. Used glossy accents at edges to join the acetate tag to the background tag. I have been really pleased with this effect.
