Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas Tags



Day 5 -Reindeer tag -The idea was to paint tag with black Adirondack paint dabber but do you think I could find it !! No so I stamped text and fourish on black card and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then painted over with blue paint dabber blended with some foam and then slightly rubbed off with damp cloth. I like the distressed effect.

Day 7 - Snowman tag -This is my favourite I love the funstamps snowman. Made background using distress inkpads on craft sheet and rubbed card into these. Then spritzed with water and dried with heatgun. For the snow I used DecoArt Snow Writer and sprinkled on Crystal Glitter. On the snowman's scarf I added some Distress glitter glue.

Day 8 -Christmas baubles tag. Didnt have any crackle paint but painted tag in silver metallic paint and when dry added alcohol inks. Added Hero Arts Merry Christmas stamp.
