Tim's 9th tag was either much simpler to do, or I'm getting the hang of it! At any rate, it seemed to have fewer and less complicated steps. I was happy to find that my acrylic paint resisted the ink just like the distress paint did on Tim's tag. I didn't have a Santa stamp, large or otherwise, so used a Christmas stocking stamp instead. I used grunge board key and key hole, which I embossed with silver, then antiqued with alcohol inks. I don't have one of those texture hammers, but I do have a meat tenderizer with a bumpy side, so I used that to give the brads an aged look. Sigh....only three more tags to go.
On a happier note, one of my best buds in the Paper Imagery Designs yahoo group, Elena, was one of today's winners today on Tim's blog. Congratulations, Elena, and enjoy your bounty!
