OK so real life occasionally gets in the way of our play time but I used this afternoon to catch up on the 12 Tags of Christmas being hosted by Tim Holtz.
First up Day 8 Steam punk Christmas.
Tim said this was a Tim tag just for fun, combining Steam punk and Christmas.
This is my take on his inspiration.
Not having all the same materials he used I had to improvise and just do without some of the elements but over all I'm pretty pleased with the results.
Close ups of the details showing my home made holly clusters and my Christmas embellishment.
Next up Day 9
Double Distressed Rusted Enamel
This is my most improvised tag yet this year. I have been trying to match Tim's tags as close as possible this year for the sheer lack of time to design and wanting my sisters tags to show his incredible art style.
However not having the stamp and die he used I had to come up with my own design for this one.
I really like the way it turned out. This technique is definitely one of my favorites.
I covered the JOY in iridescent embossing power to compliment the bling forest floor.
