12 tags Christmas

It doesn't seem a year since we were dribbling over Tim Holtz Christmas tags yet its Christmas tagtime over at Tim's blog.  I'd like to enter this my take on one of his tags into the 12 tags of 2012 December competition.

I have utilised a previous idea borrowed from Hels Sheridan See earlier blog post for link to instructions) but needed to adapt the size of this gift-velope to incorporate the tag.  I did cut down the tags used to enable me to get two out of one sheet of 12" x 12" co oredinations cardstock.  I used papers from the holidays past ideaology paper stash and inked them all with iced spruce. 

To fasten I have fixed string under the front tag and wrapped it around the back of the card to tie around the glittered brad.

I used distress inks to watercolour the snowman which was stamped with Tim's Christmas blue print stamps and cut out and decoupaged onto the front tag. 

The snowflakes were cut from foiled card with the spellbinders 2012 set and coloured with aqua alcohol ink.
