Tims Tag 10 Neelz take (and a Bonus)

Hi there, a nice easy (relative to some of them!) tag from Mr Holtz this morning. I did not have the snowman die so had to improvise and mine is a fair bit smaller! I messed up on the embossing hence the banner! Works for me though! I have used the acetate embossing before but not for a while so it was good to be reminded of it. I used christmas ornaments (Yep, no snowflakes in my stuff!) I added some star gems to fill up some of the empty spaces n the sky.

During the tags I have ended up with spare tags because I tend to use them to wipe the excess paint up or mop up the leftover inks from the craft sheet so yesterday I played with a couple of those.
The first was from the colourwash from tag 7's flowers

I used craft individuals flowers to overstamp on the tag; then stamped the girl onto a nestabilities tag and used the rusty emamel technique. I think it worked really well.

But my absolute favourite has to be this next one, the tags was covered in excess pearl paint from the dabber. I coloured it with blues and LOVE the way it came out. I then embossed 2 butterflies (Cuttlebug) and brushed over with blues to highlight. Really happy with the end result

Be blessed in your art today; have fun whatever you are doing.

Wow they are all fabulous :D
I feel cheated that I wiped up excess ink instead of dipping more tags now!!!

newbie here-coming over from Paper Issues! Love seeing the guys take on Tim tags too! I loved the one onthe blog, but after looking at allof yours, this one is my favorite; something about the metallic accetns and the pearl paint is awesome together!
