Day 12-HomeSpun Holiday

 Day 12 of 25 Days til Christmas HomeSpun Holiday continues with a Tim Holtz theme. Since today marked his 12th tag I thought why not try to make a tag with all my Tim Holtz goodies.

I really love how it turned out, I first started with a shipping tag, covered it with Bo Bunny Christmas papers again, then ran it through my cuddle bug machine with tall pines texture fades of Tim's.
Brushed pineneedle distress ink over the tall pines embossed images, while it was still wet sprinkled on platinum embossing enamel. Then I grabbed my snowflake texture fades ran the tag through again-ponced versa mark ink on and sprinkled tinsel snowflake embossing powder from CTMH.
Dragged the edges of the tag in versa mark and also in platinum again to give it a vintage frosted affect. I loved that alot. I thought half way through oh I should be snapping pics of my steps, but I did get a couple.

 here is the tag after running through the folders and embossing.
a close up of the little birdie sitting on some pines, I embossed him is red tinsel CTMH embossing powder and I couldn't resist the ticket stamp. The white on the pine bowes are snowcap dabber paint.

I used pealed paint and pineneedles distress inks to add shade to the pine bowes (the pine bowes are a punch, where I punched them out of two different colors of green card stock and inked the edges for depth) and to color the birdcage (which is a die cut from Tim Holtz's Alterations Collection. For a little bling I used Tim's Pearl Baugles. Added a pearl brad and trims. And there you have my take on Tim's 12 tags of Christmas. Have a great new start to your week, Peggy Lee.
