Tim Holtz tag 10


Here is my version of Tim's tag #10.
I chages it into a very wintery tag.
For Tim's in structions you go here.
These snowcrystals are not made with the rosette die,
but with a punch you see below. So if you do not have 
the rosette die, this is how you can make your own 
rosette in any size you like.
Take a punch and punch out the border and cut it into a strip.
For this one I used a strip of 9 1/4" by aprox 1 1/4".
I folded every 1/4 inch (37 folds).
The rosette is inkted with ice spruce distress ink and sprayed
with silver glimmer mist.The ice cristal on top is cut out of
grungeboard, painted with white acryl paint and 
picket fence distress stickels on top.
The base of the tag is Kraft Core paper.
First the tag cut out and then embossed with the snowflakes.
The snowflakes are sanded down and 
white acrylic paint is added on top.
The top of the tag is embossed with 
the ice border and also acrylic white paint.
And to make it look even more icy I added
clear rock candy distress stickels.
The embellishment is tulle, silver tassle and 3 little silver bells.
The bels are tied together with metal wire and all is glued with
hot glue to the tag.
Here you see the banner up close (click on the picture for even larger view)
and you see that i have embossed the banner with snow flakes.
Also added some white acryl paint and ice spruce ink
on the outsides of the border. The letters are made with grungeboard,
painted in silver and glossy accent on top.
I used the different letter dies for this.

Back to my craftroom for tag # 11.
Can you tell I am having fun with tags?

Have a creative day!
