Hi there everyone; yes it has finally dawned; this morning at 8am UK time the world wide mania that is Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas has begun......... now I was so eager to get started that I did a couple of tags on "Tag eve" ie 30 November so I thought I'd share those with you before going onto my interpretation of Tim's amazing tag!
I decided to start as I imagined Tim to start; with a festive Starbucks!
HERE with all the videos, step by step pictures and finished tag.
This is my interpretation of it
But I did follow the techniques in my own way. What I enjoy about the tags is being creative with my supplies so I coloured my base tag with stormy sky distress ink and embossed with one of Tim's flourish folders. I'd used the technique before but not with white powder and I love the way it turned out. I cut my Noel freehand and glittered with blue glitter.
Instead of using different coloured card I coloured a card with various distress inks before cutting out the foliage.
I used real pine cones and some pearl brads and an old earring at the top. The organza ribbon was coloured with distress ink too.
Here's some of the detail
Have fun everyone and if you are joining in with the magic I look forward to seeing your on his blog too.
