We are showcasing TIM HOLTZ PRODUCTS
this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
I'm going to be honest has much has I love seeing amazing tags from other people its not something I do unless its really quick and easy ones for Christmas. So this challenge is a real challenge for me and as soon as I see we have to use Tim Holtz products I tried to create similar to the great man himself which is way out of my comfort zone. But I love how my tag turned out.
First off the card is from Authentique Joyous
but one of the plain ones that back the design lucky I didn't like the pattern on the other side. I then stamped the fir from Tim Holtz 2014 Christmas Blueprints
twice. Then using a gold pigment inkpard I quickly before it dried stamped the brick wall using a wooden stamp called Bricked
its quite small stamp so I had to use it several times helped out with a Stamp a ma jig.
I used gold embossing powder in my stash. The pointesettia from the blueprints set was paper pieced with some red and green from the same Authentique pack.
I then did something foolish and used a white pen on the fir and hated it so I tried to rub it off but it left a bit of residue which actually give me the look I was looking for. I added a bit of gold ribbon again from my stash and stuck it on a card so I could photo it better.
So now it's YOUR turn. Happy Crafting
