Christmas Tags 3 & 4

Day three’s tag is total improvisation! I don’t have the Tim Holtz stamp or the embossing folder so I was stumped for a while.

I was going to make my own embossing folder using both the negative and the cut outs of the words, using several layers made with the Silhouette but I decided it was too much like hard work.  Maybe another time.  I just layered 2 copies of the letters and inked them to suit.

Tag 3

Day four’s tag is very, well, Blue!  My crackle paint has seen better days so Mr Snowman is more textured than crackled.  I don’t have this die either (actually, I don’t have any of Tim’s dies) but I do have my Silhouette so I played around with a purchased file of the snowman and a snowflake border.  The acetate snowflake border seems a bit pointless to me – you can’t see it at all on my tag :(
