Two more Tags

I have now finished 7 of the 12 Tags of Christmas for this year!
This tag was firstly swiped with white paint dabber along the edges and allowed to dry. I then coloured the background using Tumbled glass and Broken China. The ink was wiped off the painted bits to retain the white colour. The snowman was cut from grunge paper using the Cricut. The hat, arms and nose were cut from another snowman and coloured using distress inks then attached to the white snowman (coloured with white paint dabber and edged with Pumice Stone DI. Merry Christmas stamped on the snowman's body.
The top layer is heavy acetate (an old package, recycled and cut to shape) and was embossed with the snowflakes folder in the Cuttlebug. Attached to the bottom layer with brads.
The Merry Christmas stamp is from a Hero Arts collection.

This tag was layered with Christmas Carol paper then coloured using Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo distress inks. The rosette was cut from the same paper and edged with vintage photo DI. The embellishments are from a Tim Holtz collection. The words were cut using the Cricut and MTC software then attached and covered with Glossy Accents. The buttons are from my stash! The brads along the bottom were attached, then hammered to produce a vintage look. The bead embellishments attached to the top were put together from my stash of beads and findings.


Have a wonderful, safe and happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Thanks for your lovely comments! I can take no credit at all for the designs for these tags. They are Tim Holtz's ideas - I am merely copying his designs with my own take where i don't have the actual dies or embellishments that he used!!
