Tim tag #3

Hello, my friends.  Today was mostly a play day for me, so I got a few more tags done as I'm following along with Tim Holtz as he does this year's 12 tags of Christmas.

Here's a link to Tim's tag #3.  And here's my version, which I actually finished yesterday.

I did a lot of improvising on this one.  I didn't have any of the cut 'n dry felt, so I just colored my stamp with distress stains and stamped.  And after that, I pretty much went my own route.  The letters are grungeboard left over from the die I used on tag #1.  I colored them with barn door distress stain and inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.

I cut the holly leaves free hand, added some vintage photo ink and some snow cap paint dabber.  The little curly pieces are very narrow strips of card stock, wrapped around a dowel to curl.  The red rhinestones are from my stash.

Oh, boy... frustration with learning how to use Picasa.  I think I may have it... hoping.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back with another tag post.
