The 12 Tags of Christmas.....

Well, here it is, my very first Tim Holtz tag!! I have become a regular TH
addict of late (wow, scrapaddict really fits It's been so fun to
play along with his 12 Days of Christmas tags.....but as much TH as I own,
I've had to improvise a lot! But then, that's all part of the creative journey!
The Noel tag is #2....I used a 7 gypsies swirl stamp, a Skipping Stones Design
music stamp and the holly stamp (can't was colored with
copics and then I used glossy accents.....think this one is one of my favs....
looks great, but was really easy!
And this is the third tag.....the branch was actually from the tree in
tag #1 (TH embossing folder)--I inked it and then cut it out. Got the
vintage post card from the internet, the tinsel is Making Memories,
and can I just say.....if you don't own TH's tissue tape....RUN don't
walk and grab it!! Wow is that stuff the BOMB!! I used it for the flower
and also it's decoupaged on the bird (which I colored with copics.....
it takes any alcohol based ink really well!!). Ok, off to work on tag #4
wow, lots of improvisation on this

And hey--don't forget to check out the Cosmo Cricket blog every
Saturday in December for my projects during my GDT stint! I'm so
excited to "play" over at CC!!!!!
