Tag 3 - Twelve tags of Christmas




Hi everyone! Tag 3 of Tim Holtz's 'twelve tags of Christmas' or rather two tags today as I enjoyed the custom ink pad technique and decided to do a couple :D. 

I've cut smaller tags today as I didn't have the large stamp in Tim's tag so I picked another solid style stamp that would cover most of the tag, it's the diamond background from Crafty Individuals and works perfectly for this and I really love the effect. I made some Christmas cards as well using these two styles. I did have the snowflakes stamps and made an ink pad with lots of the blue range of distress inks, even the pale ones and it worked really well on the kraft tag. I embossed with a snowflake folder on the diamond tag and spritzed with pearl spray, very nice and shimmery. So my take on the tag is totally different which is good and I'll definitely be using the custom ink pad idea again.

Have a lovely day and thank you for your comments as always. :)

My fave is the one on the right Chris and I LOVE your rusty bells! Do they come with a TH price tag?

Both of your tags are beautiful Chris! The diamond or harlequin stamp really pops off the tag with the cheerful colors, and I like your "aged" jingle bells! Both are lovely tags.
Hugs, Cami
