On the Second Day of "Tag-mas"

Well... the studio is very "creative" -- not "messy", it's "creative" LOL
I came in today and set right to work on Tim's 12 Days of Christmas - Tag #2. Super Cute!

Here is my interpretation:


Another great tag Tim!
This tag used: a craft sheet, distress inks, embossing ink, distress embossing powder, archival ink, a mini mister, heirloom gold perfect pearls, a heat tool, metal corners, foliage, sanding grip (idea-ology), a paper distresser, craft pick, tim holtz scissors (tonic); some stamps, and a tag. All these things I have in and for sale in the studio -- so I'm set :) Yippee!!
I learned something new doing this tag!! A few things actually -- like sanding the metal corners -- WOW!! That made my eyes pop! -- and the proper way to use Distress embossing powder (I wasn't letting it cool completely before using - big difference!) but the BEST part, for me, was learning how to create this funky rose from Ideaology Foliage. YAY!! A new way to use this fabulous stuff! Making me drool Tim, making me drool! Check it out:
Sweet, isn't it?
All in all another great tag by Tim Holtz. To see his tutorial - check out Tim's Blog
....and stay tuned for tomorrow!
