Happy Sunday, Everyone!
Today is the last day of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas, it is Day #12. If you haven't stopped by Tim's blog, do so...he has some fabulous tags and techniques today and he also shows us his "base tray." It's pretty neat if you like Sizzix Movers and Shapers. I need to buy some of his movers and shapers ;p'.
My tag base is made from Tim's seasonal stack. I cut it out the paper to fit my #8 tag. I distressed the edges and then added walnut stain.
I used the rock candy distress crackle paint technique he used to create his "ornament," but I used a stain to color up the grunge paper first (he used grunge board). I used a Sizzix ornament die. It came with the heart. I adhered the ornament to the tag and added gold Stickles in the two holes of the ornment and then glossy accents over it. I added some tissue tape that looks like a banner (similar to tag #6) and then added "L O V E" from Tim's vintage market alpha die. I added a little bit of Stickles and some black soot ink to the letters.
The December calendar is from his Lost and Found paper pad. I distressed the edges and added walnut stain. I adhered the heart on top of it and rubbed a little bit of Stickles on the edges. I added a vintage image above the calendar that I distressed with antique linen.
The green trim is Webster's Pages. I added it to the top of the ornament and at the bottom of the tag. Added some rose buds that I had dipped into UTEE.
I added two poms from the top with a mini safety pini and then added some peppermint baker's twine.
