This is my tag that I actually made by accident. I didn't have a large pine cone stamp but I did have a small one. I stamped my small one several times and then when I got ready to emboss I didn't have any clear embossing powder, so I thought I would use Bridal embossing powder, NOT, it turned into a big globby mess. I looked at my tag and thought wow I have done a lot of work to this card so how can I fix it or cover it up and it is then when the light in my head came on and I remembered I had a pre stamped a bunch of Santa images earlier this year. I got one, using my Mahogany Distress and Tea Dye Ink I colored my Santa in with my H2o pen. I then did some distressing with the distress tool and Pumice Distress Ink, added some Fine Sage Flower Soft and walla a cover up that turned out to be pretty cool. My stamp is from the Inkadinkado Sketches Scrollwork Christmas Stamps for my sentiment. I am so glad that Tim Holtz encourages to use the items that we have on hand BUT...
I couldn't resist I wanted to do a tag using the techniques from the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas blog post. So you guessed it I bought a pine cone stamp, not the one he used, I couldn't find it but I did like this one from Inky Antics and I also got some Clear embossing powder and it turned out very nicely. I added the birds but I got them at our local Hobby Lobby and I think they work out very well.
