12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 2



Hi everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Here's my version of tag two of the Tim Holtz twelve tags of Christmas and this time I did have the die that was used and even a scrap of canvas :). I didn't have the kraft resist card so I made my own with clear embossing powder and used stamps from the mini holiday stamp set for the rest of the background stamped with permanent ink. I love how the grunge paper I used instead of grunge board looks after it's been inked, almost like suede and the bashed/hammered brads look much better than leaving them as they come out of the packet but I think I should have used more of the white stain on the background, I think I wiped too much off!

Enjoy your day :).
