Tim Holtz tag 4

 So, I here is tag 4. This one took some drying time,
but was so fun to make.
Can you believe Tim Holtz was inspired by the snow that had
fallen in Arizona! Here in the Netherlands it should snow,
but we just have stormy weather and not to cold for
the time of the year. It was however great to be inside and craft.

For instructions on how to make this tag go to
He has such wonderful and detailed instructions.
 Again I chose to make the tag for Hanukkah.
And I had stashed somewhere this lovely Hanukkah token,
that I could fasten to the fibres.
 Even though the tag is quite similair, the number is different.
I made an 8 with my cricut out of musical scrap paper.
This number because the Holiday of hanukkah lasts for 8 days.
I added glossy accent and when all was dry I added a bit of 
frayed burlap distress ink to the borders.

Now here is a second tag. The background is is the same as the 
first one, but for this tag I used Michael Strong's
Snowpal and winter cameo.
 I stamped the winter cameo on kraft paper
with faded jeans distress ink and used a bit of white
pencil before I embossed and used clear embossing powder.
Thank i cracked the embossed part to give it an
icy look. Punched a hole and added it to the fibres.
 I stamped the Snowpal with black, colored it with pencil
and cut out the shape. It is completely embossed
with clear embossing powder.
I also added a Michaerl Strong sentiment to the bottom.
 Have a creative day!
