Its Day 2 and another day of inspiration from Tim Holtz. His day 2 tag can be found here.
For me it was another day of improvising to work with what I had. I had no kraft resist paper so I made some. I stamped music notes on a kraft tag and then clear embossed the word Christmas ( I used alpha stamps to do this as I had no large Christmas sentiments!). I had no distress stain, picket fence or otherwise. So to improvise a wash over my tag I put a small bit of the paint from a Pearl paint dabber on a craft mat. I spritzed with a lot of water and mixed it well. I then painted this over my tag and when dry wiped it off my clear embossed sentiment.
I used a on the edge die to cut my bottom strip for the tag and inked it up copper and distressed it up a bit. I added half pearls instead of brads like Tim did as I didnt have enough brads. I stamped a flourish on the top left of the tag. I inked my tag with some forest moss ink for a bit of distressing.
I cut the reindeer out using my eCraft and painted it with crackle paint. I gave him a little twine collar with a star hanging off it. I used burlap for my tag top and some red baubles for a pop of colour.
The pearl coloured dabber gives the tag a nice sheen. I had great fun improvising on this tag as always
