12 Tags of 2014: December – Tim Holtz

It’s tag day at the Stacy craft desk!  I’ve finished my December 12 Tags by Tim Holtz making a few substitutions from the original by using the Bigz Reindeer Flight die cut out with grunge paper and covered with distress paint, distress ink and glitter. I also didn’t have any distress spray so I took my distress ink and repurposed it by pulling off the dauber top on the distress stain bottle and putting the stain into a mini mister to make my own distress spray and it worked!  Yeah for me.  The background is faded jeans distress ink mixed with Brushed Pewter distress stain.  I then heat embossed silver Hero Arts shadow ink with clear powder and distressed the edges with walnut stain.  I didn’t have the Holiday Greens thinlits die but did have the Festive Greenery die, also Tim Holtz.  I cut that out using kraft core in green.  I also used brushed sage and brushed pewter to make the light greenery.  The birch trees are an Impression Obsession Die also cut out with Kraft Core.  I threaded tinsel through a red bell for the reindeers collar and stapled some lights.  I cut out “believe” foil paper and adhered the border sticker at the bottom of the tag with multi-medium.  Wish me luck!
