My Take on Tags 4 and 5 on the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas

I am so far behind on the 12 Tags of Christmas that Tim Holtz has shared on his blog that it is almost embarrassing to share Tags 4 and 5, hee, hee, hee but here they are anyway. So this is my interpretation of Tag 4 and to see the original concept please go to Tim's Tag. I used an embossing folder to achieve my snowflakes and fussy cut them out since I didn't have the die to cut out. I also used a stamp for my snowman and enlarged it, fussy cut it out and hand drew my 25 in the center, then cut it out with my xacto knife. The rest of the tag I did as on Mr. Tim's Blog. I really like that we are encouraged to use our products that we have at home and to use our creative juices to make a tag that looks like his creation.Tag 5 was really cool technique where you used alcohol ink, covered an acetate tag and then stamped your background stamp over the top of the ink once it was dry, blotting off the Black Archival Ink off with a soft cloth to expose the acetate. To finish it add a white tag to the back of the tag. I made a wreath from some Bo Bunny Christmas paper and placed the wreath over the top of a Santa image from the same paper collection. To see Mr. Tim's Blog version of the tag just go to the link. I hope you have enjoyed my interruption of the tags and I hope I can get the other seven made. Wish me luck. Hugs Pammejo
