Timmy's Tag Day 2

Here is my belated Tim Holtz Tag No.2 of the series of 12 'Tags of Christmas'.  Not quite on track but it's good to be different !!

I cut the base tag from white card and once again I have improvised.  Firstly I didn't have the fir & cone stamps so I used a fir stamp (PaperArtsy) and selectively coloured the end of the fir twig in brown ink.  I did heat emboss with detail clear embossing powder before colouring the background of the tag with weathered wood & stormy sky Distress inks and cut'n'dry foam.

I used a cherry pie old music stamp inked in vintage photo and a swirls stamp inked in pumice stone to stamp the other elements of the background.(none of the stamps were TH actually).  I then applied a distress dots stamp inked with galaxy gold Brilliance ink around the edges.

The 'Merry' polymer stamp was inked with barn door.  Again I didn't have a metal bird so I used a grungeboard swirl treated with Viva gold croco crackle paste and applied in two places trimming edges closely.  The whole tag was edged with dark brown chalk ink.

Final touches were adding a gold eyelet with the crop-a-dile and threading through and tying with red and green silk and grosgrain ribbons embellished with an oval gold cabochon.
