inspired by Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas

I was missing the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas so I decided to make another Tag.

I was supposed to be designing the ATC for our club meeting tomorrow
(and we have a midnight crop going on)
but I was not sure what to make so I decided to make a Tag instead.
yep, I am a procrastinator.

Here is the background and it is shimmery.
I painted a tag with two shades of Green Luminarte H2O's. When it was dry I took a Hero Arts Background stamp and inked it up with Versamark ink.
I then embossed with clear powder.
When the tag had cooled, I painted over it with a Red Luminarte H2O.
The versamarked areas resisted the H2O

Here is a photo of the background.

I made the Ornament using Ranger self adhesive Metal Sheets which I put on chipboard to make it more stable.
I diecut the ornament using the Tim Holtz Ornament die.
I then ran the diecut piece through the bigshot using one of the Tim Holtz texture fades.
I used two shades of alcohol ink in greens to color the ornament and then sanded it to reveal the silver lines.
Using glossy accents I added the vintage glass glitter on the top.
I tied on some tuelle and then I was done.

and I also managed to get the ATC designed!!
