Timmy's Tag Day 7

Next one in the series of Tim Holtz Tags............this one is Day 7 and I am determined to finish the series before Christmas Day.  The background tag was made from white card first coloured with wild honey Distress Ink and a blending tool.  I didn't have the woodgrain embossing folder so I used a cuttlebug folder that  I did have and coloured the folder with walnut stain DI before embossing.  The tag was then edged with vintage photo DI after roughing up with course sandpaper.

The poinsettia came next and I did use the two Sizzix dies to produce the petals and leaves but this time I used linen cardstock instead of grungepaper, once coloured and cut out I assembled all of the petals on 3 large sticky dots finishing off with a large pale green plastic gem.

The letters were actually white flock self adhesive ones that I first coloured with fired brick DI and heat dried before sticking onto the tag.  The flourish was cut from Grungeboard and coloured with white brilliant white emulsion paint before colouring the edges with vintage photo DI.  This was cut in two and applied with Glossy Accents as shown.

Finishing touches were to apply a gold eyelet with the crop-a-dile and add a short length of silk ribbon, threaded through and tied around with some green wire.  I cut the 25 from some of Tims printed paper, coloured the edge stuck in place and added a half pearl .  That's it !!
