The 10th Tag of Christmas


I very much enjoyed creating this tag because I got to play with my new Tim Holtz masks -- what a great product! I followed the layout of Tim's tag and his techniques, but changed the theme. Tim used a large reindeer stamp. I don't actually have any Christmas stamps large enough for this project, so I took a grunge board heart for a LOVE theme, dry embossed it in a Cuttlebug folder for texture, and then gave it a treatment similar to Tim's. I rubbed over it with a clear ink pad, added black embossing powder and heat set it. Then I painted over it with a Perfect Pearls mixture. I used Tim's color scheme, but changed it around. His reindeer was green, the background mostly reds. My heart is reddish pink, the background mostly greens.
The crown is from a Cuttlebug die and embossing folder. I'm thinking this tag should be called "Queen of Hearts."

Looking forward to Tag 11!

Oh, BTW, can't post my first gift in the 12 gifts of Christmas because one of our group lives in Australia, and hasn't received her package yet. Want everyone to be surprised. As soon as I get the word that she has all her gifts in hand, I'll begin posting photos.

Thanks for stopping by!
