12 Tags of Christmas - Day 4...Let's Improvise some more!

Inspired by Tim's tag for day 4, I had to improvise again, as I do not have all the fun goodies he used on hand!  The good thing about my improvising was that I found my misplaced Umbrella Man and Old Jalopy embossing folders, while looking for other product in my studio to use on today's tag!

 I followed Tim's direction to create the lovely background, but before inking the tag, I spritzed the Distress Inks with some Perfect Pearls mist for added shimmer.  I did add some flourishes using Our Daily Bread Designs Ornaments 2 (the flourish with the Christmas Tree), but you won't see it, as the Picket Fence Stain just seemed to absorb into my background.  The Snowflakes are from ODBD's Peace and Joy stamped in Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

I cut the ornament from Grungepaper using Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament Die, then cut the small Reindeer from the center so I could follow Tim's steps.  In place of music paper, I used a scrap of Bo Bunny Snowfall paper.  Once my Glossy Accents finally dried, I felt the ornament was too plan, so I covered up the deer and Silver Embossed an ornament from ODBD's Ornament 2 set.  I applied Scor-Tape to the edges of the tag and Ornament and added Gala Glitz for some added bling.  In place of the Snowflake Edge, I used an On the Edge die, that was embossed with the Texture Fades Folder.
