It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year......

time to be enabled by Tim Holtz with his fab 12 Days of Christmas Tags!  Time to get your pen and paper out and add to that WISH list.  Tim's Day 1 Tag featured the cool Rickety House Die - just love all the different tags he should using this house die.  Not having the die, a girl has to improvise and add to her wish list - right!  So taking inspiration from Tim, here's what I came up with:


Click to Enlarge
A crackled, distressed, glittered snowman, who's WISHING she had all the supplies she needed, but instead will be adding things from the "I don't really need that list", to the "I really have to have it NOW list".

The Background was created with Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Inks, snowflakes are stamped in Broken China.  I added Glossy Accents and SU's Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to add the "snow" to the snowman.  The ticket stamps is from Tim's 100th Collection, I inked in versamark, colored with markers then clear embossed to get the finished look, then sponged on Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Tim's Day 2 Tag shows how he custom makes the ink pads to get this look - I'll be back later today with my version of Day 2!

Funny thing about the house die, is that I was not going to buy it and then did! Now that I have seen what Master Tim shared, so glad I did!! Love your improvised tag! So cool! Hope Lou is almost back to normal!

Hi Lisa~

What a great combination of materials! I really like how the snowman has the word wish cut out of it. The added charm is great! I really like the whole thing! It goes to show that we can really stack technique over technique!

Thanks so much for sharing with us!

He IS Able,

This is cool, i love how the word fits into the snowman, very clever :D

Oh lisa, how I understand your comments! I tried to "guess" what Tim might use -- and never even guessed he would use the rickety house die! It is now on the way to me! I keep hoping AC Moore will get these things in and I can use a coupon. I am not sure how much longer I can hold out! Tonight is when I can work on the tags for Day One and Two. I do not even have the snowman die! We are all going to be broke. And your tag is beautiful.
