12 Days of Christmas - Day 6...Hubby to the Rescue

Inspired by Tim's Tag for Day 6, I set out on yet another creative venture to be ME!  I'm enjoying this years tags much more than in previous years, as I'm taking more creative liberties with the tags and techniques.  Today's tag is no different, I have fabulous metal from Ten Second Studios that I would have used, but of course it was in the wrong color, so I turned to Hubby's supplies and grabbed his HVAC Tape, works like a charm!


I adhered the HVAC Tape to a piece of card stock, then die cut with Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Die and embossed with a Sizzix Texture Fades folder.  The image and sentiment are both from the Artistic Outpost Sleigh Ride plate.  Old St. Nick is stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock and colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I used 3L Adhesives sheet to adhere the colored piece to the ornament, then cut a Black layer to go under the ornament to help it pop.  To embellish the tag and Ornamanet I used Zva Creative Flourishes and Gems, then added some Dyed Seam Binding, Pine Cones and Glittery Foliage.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Distress Ink Gathered Twigs, Distress Ink Festive Berries (to dye seam binding), STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils
Card Stock - Black, Vanilla, Manilla Tag
Other - Basic Grey Jovial Pattern Paper, Silver Foliage, Ink Blending Tool, Non Stick Craft Mat, Seam Binding, HVAC Tape, 3L Adhesive, Zva Creative Flourishes/Gems, Pine Cone Bunch (Hobby Lobby), Blending Stumps, Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament Die, Big Shot, Texture Fades Embossing Folder

Thanks for stopping by!
