12 Tags of Christmas - Day 10....May Your Christmas Be Merry

Inspired by Tim's Tag for Day 10, but knowing that the Transfer Tape Technique and I do not work nicely together, I opted to go a different route with the Facet.

I dug through the garbage in my studio for the image of Old St. Nick that I tossed from one of this weeks tags that didn't go as planned, and recycled him for use with the Facet.  The image is from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate, stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and Gamsol, then cut out.  I used HVAC Tape in place of the foil, and Tinsel embossed the edges of the Faucet.  The sentiment is Gold Embossed on a scrap piece of My Minds Eye Lost and Found Christmas paper.
