I CASE'd a good portion of Shari's tag because it was just too pretty not to, but also added a few of my own touches! Take a look:
I used quite a bit of Tim Holtz products to make my tags including Holly Collage paper, Holiday Flash cards, and the Christmas 8 x 8 pad. I started by using Ranger's Texture Paste and rubbing it with my fingers (messy!!) over my PTI Basic Bookmark #2 tags and then adding torn bits of the Holly tissue paper and pieces from the Christmas 8 x 8 pad. Once they dried I started adding my layers.
My greenery sprig is from TH's Holiday Greens dies and I sponged it with some Mossy Meadow ink and then some Delicata Golden Glitz ink. I also did some gold embossing to the edges of the PTI Fancy Flakes snowflake, but it didn't show up real well so I added some of the Delicata Golden Glitz ink to the snowflake as well. I sponged Tea Dye ink around the edges of the Noel flashcard and then stamped a few small snowflakes over that too.
One of the papers in the 8 x 8 pad is clear acetate that has white snowflakes on it and I die cut a 2nd tag to lay over the base tag and I love the look it gives with all the extra snowflakes on the tag! Wish I could take credit for that idea, but that is Shari's idea too! Make sure you check out her video on how to do a tag like this...she has all kinds of helpful tips and the link is right HERE. A few red sequins, a button, and some very fine gold thread finished off my tags.
If you like making tags, be sure to check out both events (HERE and HERE) to play along...so much wonderful inspiration from both!!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
