Sir Tim's Tag Art

Hi Everyone. This is what I've been playing with today using some of my new goodies. This is a direct copy of Tim Holtz 2011 12 Tags of Christmas, Day 7. I just love it. I cut the tag myself with TH Movers and Shapers Tag and Labels die cut. I bought that in the UK but this is the first time I've used it. I needed to buy the extension B Plates for my Cuttlebug in order to get it to work properly so now I can use all those extra long cutting dies without any hassle. The holly leaves are made from TH glassine paper which is something totally new to me. I watched a demo video and then had SUCH fun colouring it with alcohol inks, scrunching it up and then cutting the leaves with TH Holly Branch die cut. The glassine paper only arrived the other day but I bought the holly branch before Christmas. The Peace on Earth stamp is from Christmas 2010 and I embossed it in black on kraft coloured card before cutting out in a random shape, aging it and mounting it on foam tape. I cut the branch from gold painted chipboard onto which I painted Picket Fence crackle paint and sprinkled ice crystals on whilst the paint was still wet. The lace is from my stash and I frayed the ends and tied it in a knot in the centre. The holly berries are TH pearls which I coloured with alcohol ink. I stuck everything down with Dimensional Magic which is REALLY good for hefty embellishments. I dyed some seam binding ribbon for the top of the tag and then attached two more baubles on a piece of narrow red and gold ribbon. Hey Presto finished. I love tag art and feel inspired to do a few more adventurous ones now. Hope you like. Take a look at some of TH others. They are AMAZING. Bed time for me now so 'night 'night. PS I forgot to say I coloured the cream tag swiping the limited edition Evergreen Bough Distress Ink pad over it randomly and then spritzing it with a green/gold glitter mist spray. 'Night.
