Woo hoo! It's time again for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas! I have been in a bit of a stamping slump lately and I think this is just what I needed to get myself back in the studio.
I love today's tag - what a great start! I didn't have the Rock Candy crackle stuff, so I used some old Fragile Crackle I had lying around. Not quite the same effect, but better than I thought it was going to be. I also didn't have the Distress Stickles, so I used regular Stickles and then sprinkled a bit of Martha Stewart glitter on it to make it a little more snowy looking.
Almost all my stamps are from various Oxford Impressions Christmas/Winter plates. The main image is from their latest collection - St. Nicholas. I am in love with this stamp! I would never have thought to emboss on Grungeboard and then go over it with white paint. VERY cool effect. I finished my piece with a bit of black twill tape and a snowflake charm from OI.
Hope you enjoyed my interpretation. I can't wait to see what tomorrow's tag is!
