Day 12 Final Tag!

Well this Journey ended all too quick for today is Day 12 in the 12 Tags of Christmas being hosted by Tim Holtz

Tim's design was all about Shabby Chic. I had almost nothing that Tim used so this is my interpretation.

I first covered my tag in Seasonal Tissue tape. Next I covered the tape with Picket Fence Distress stain, then white paint dabber. Once that dried I then covered the whole tag with embossing ink and embossed the whole tag with iridescent embossing powder then inked over that. The Artful Dwelling piece I covered in Broken China distress paint and inked the edges with Black Soot.

I love the layered letters that Tim showed. I have been doing this for a while and love the way it makes letters pop.

I was trying to show the colors that are reflecting in the background which doesn't come across too well in the photo.

What a great year of tags. Now I need to get busy with some cards.

Merry Christmas Everyone!
