Today for fun I’m trying a Tim Technique, but (with my own twist), from page 44, and this is what I came up with. I did not cover the whole tag with VerasMark, but ran it over (hit and miss). Oh what fun!!
The Angel Hair didn’t show up as well as I wanted, but believe me it’s there.
Credits are; Just Rite Clear stamps, Great Impressions, Hero Arts.

Frilly and Funkie New Challenge is Chipboard and Metal
 Boy what perfect timing as I just got in new toys!
Linda is asking us to work with Chipboard and Metal for this challenge.
So using Tim’s new Silhouette (Movers and Shapers #658254), I cut the ladies head out of black fun foam trimmed her neck with red ribbon and added a gold brad. Then with another new toy I cut out and embossed Spellbinders D-Lites Die,
(Medallion Four #S2-021).
Using my Embossing Diffuser plates (#657945) and Sizzix folders for the background, which was stained with distress ink.
For the Poinsettias I cut red Christmas ribbon and layered it with white and gold Christmas ribbon. Added gold brads for centers and a gold jingle bell. For my chipboard I used green glitter holy leaves.
Thanks for stopping in today, if you have time check in with

First Christmas Tag

White on White with Gold, and very hard to film…
I never thought this would be so hard to take a few pictures off, but it was.
I used the technique in Tim’s new book, page 40 (Crumpled Kaft Suede), only with White Stain, White Perfect Pearls and Galaxy Gold Brilliance Ink.
Sizzix folder and Tim Holtz (Paper Rosette Die) was used.
The paper rosette was cut from brown and white pillow ticking fabric.
Little graphic from Magic Moonlight.
Numbers from (Word Play Die), Thank You Linda.
Small Tag, (Metal Corner from Terry) which was colored with Gold Leafing Pen.
Small gold Christmas tree from Dollar Store.
Thank you for your visit today, hope everyone is recovering, and staying warm over the week-end.    Sending Our Prayers out to you and your family, Take Care.
