Timmy's Tag Day 8

Once more a belated Tim's Tag....this time it's No.8.  Again I have improvised heavily.  The only real TH stuff is the Distress inks and the houses Sizzix ' On The Edge' Die along with rock candy Stickles and Tissue tape.

The sleigh and reindeer are made from stencils applied over a blank white tag with masking tape to obscure everything but the images.  Rubbed over with fired brick Distress Ink and then stamped with a snowflake stamp in black Archical ink.  The stencils were then removed and some masks made from these images.  With the masks in place I used  stormy sky DI and overstamped with a flourish stamp (?) in black Arcihval ink.  Once the masks were removed the effect was quite similar to that of Tims.

The houses were diecut from grungeboard, coloured with turquoise acrylic paint and grunged with coarse sandpaper before applying smoke made from florists wire and rock candy Stickles before sticking down with Glossy accents.

The clockface was made from an original clear watchglass stuck over a cutout of a clockface with glossy accents.  The finger was again a real finger stuck on with glossy accents.  A metal corner embellishment was added as shown.

Finishing touches were to add the words on a piece of tissue tape and to add an eyelet with the crop-a-dile, threaded through with ribbons and an old bit of a beaded necklace.
