12 Tags of Christmas Day 4
Day 4 of the 12 tags of Christmas at the Tim Holtz blog and yet another fun background technique - kind of a wrinkle free distress using stains - it does give a nice softness with the addition of white Picket Fence. I had to make a modification to do the die-cut snowman. Not having the die, I used instead the snowman embossing folder image for my template and cut a piece of chipboard using scissors and a knife into the snowman shape. I added chipboard numbers covered with paper and glossy accents instead of the die-cut 25 directly into the snowman - I may be good with my knife, but I'm not that good ;-) This tag really had a fun mix of textures with crackle, tulle, tinsel, ribbon and a tiny feather. Can't wait to see what's up for tomorrow!
