Timmy's Tag Day 1

Here is my Day 1 tag of the Tim Holtz '12 Days of Christmas' series.  Yet again I have improvised heavily on this one.  The house is made from chipboard that has been coloured with wild honey Distress Ink and stamped with a distressed lines stamp with walnut stain Distress ink.  The edges of the roof and windows were decorated with clear glass glitter applied with glossy accents.

The background tag was made from white card with Distress inks in faded jeans, stormy sky and tumbled glass Distress inks rubbed on a craft sheet and wetted with home made gold mica spray.  The tag was repeatedly rubbed over the craft sheet to build up layers and dried each time between layers.

The wreath was a ready made embellishmentt and the trees (PaperArtsy) were stamped in pine needles and coloured with the same, before adding with glossy accents and foam pads.

The fence (Sizzix) was stamped onto acetate with versamarks and heat embossed with seafoam white embossing powder, trimmed out and stuck at both sides over the house and trees.

Final touches were to stamp Noel (PaperArtsy) twice and colour with stormy sky before trimming out and sticking in place.  Whilst adding an eyelet with the crop-a-dile and tying through with some blue ribbon finished the tag.
