Tim Holtz Tag

Well in the spirit of Tim and his Christmas tags I have made one of my own!

I purchased the tall pines texture fades embossing folder yesterday and tonight I thought I would have a play.

So I got the cuttlebug out and ran a Kaszazz chipboard tag through and embossed the trees on the tag.
Then I got my favorite inks out. :) Yes you know it.

Tim Holtz Distressed Inks.

I coloured the whole tag with broken china using the blending tool, then got a little impaitent and slapped on a bit more ink direct from the pad.
Then gave the whole tag a spray with the Kaszazz Smooch Spritz Electric Blue.
Then direct to tag again with the crushed olive just over the trees.
A little brushed corduroy over the trunks. Then a little blending around the edges of the tag with the blending tool and brushed corduroy. the Moonlight Smooch out and dotted all over the 'sky' area. Hey it needed snow. :)
Got the 'A Very Merry Christmas' stamp 1865LE (only available from Kaszazz) and stamped it on a scrap of white card and cut off the start of the words. I used the brushed corduroy to stamp it. I trimmed the card to look like a banner, then inked over the card using a blending tool with Barn Door. Then wiped a smudge of brushed corduroy over the whole banner. I shaped the banner and put magic mount under the raised parts to give it support.
I found a couple of ribbons and needed a red so I coloured a white ribbon with barn door and brushed corduroy to give continuity to the tag.
Got a aged bronze spiral out and stuck that on the side with a rhinestone in the centre. I particularly like the Kaszazz rhinestones as they have a great sparkle to them.
Now I did go a little nuts with the ice stickles, crystal ice. I applied it thick and lumpy, I wanted the texture.
Well that is it. Hope you like it.
Oh BTW if you would like to see Tim's work.
