Based on Tim's tags at The Stamp Man

Hi there everyone.

It's the start of a new challenge over at The Stamp Man. This time we are looking at interpretations of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas.
I based my card on Tim's 2010 tag number 9 to make this card.

I used the Seasonal Silhouettes stamp for the background using Tumbled glass distress ink and then blended some peeled paint over the top. I added the snaps to it and mounted it onto silver card before adhering to the card blank.
I inked and stamped onto a strip of card and made the rosette using the Alterations die.
The letters were cut with Alterations Carnavale die and stamped with a flourish from the Mini holidays stamp set.
I used an Idea-ology charm to decorate and coloured the letters in the same distress inks before sticking down and then covering with glossy accents to add shine and depth.
So there you have an interpretation, I left off the tinsel and buttons mainly because my tinsel is still in the loft and I could not find buttons to match!
The rest of the team has come up with great projects so why don't you pop on by and join in. There's a £10.00 Stamp Man voucher up for grabs as always.
Enjoy the rest of the afternoon.

Thank you Neil for such an amazing interpretation of Tim's tag. I love the muted colours of the card and the rosette with the reindeer charm is truly outstanding.
Have a wonderful weekend.
