Tag #9

This tag was so much fun to make . The photos were free download from Tim Holtz which I printed on vellum . Used sticker film for the photos


My take on #8 tag offered by Tim Holtz. I copied some music on to vellum ,sponged it with distressed ink and then dried it with the heat gun.The lamppost was stamped embossed colored with copic markers and cutout added holly leaf sticker and stickles. The key is chipboard which I colored with gold metallic paint attached it to tag with jump ring and star brad.

tag #7

For this tag I used the mask techinque .Sponged distressed ink on BG ,Stamped flourish in white ,and script in black . Added Stickles to the holly to give it some sparkle.


Tag #6 was so much fun to do and think it is one of my favorites so far . The car was stamped and embossed then sponged with distressed ink to give it that old look. The tree was stamped ,embossed ,sponged with distressed ink and cut out I then used flock to give it the look of snow on the branches. For the base of the tag i glued a page from a book ,then sponged with distressed ink and stamped season greetings.
