Hello Friends and Fellow Santa's Helpers!
I am back with another Tag for the Funky Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge. Here is Linda's Tag 2 which is the inspiration for us this time round......
Isn't it fabulous!! Here is mine....
A bit of a manly and metallic tag this time using metal foil tape as the background and giving it a look of rivets and things. The metal was inked with Alcoholic inks and then rubbed with wire wool. You have NO idea how much I dislike the feel of wire wool. You may recall this is Tim Holtz' technique for his September Tag.
This ticket I printed out a few years ago when my friend was in my craft room....it is her stamp. I remembered it was in the bottom of my Snippet tin. The Santa was coloured in using Distress Marker pens and a water brush. The Snowflakes are from a grungeboard set by Mr Holtz and the gears were cut using grungeboard and a TH die, coloured with Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain DI and embossed with Rusty Hinge Distress Embossing powder. The top one was painted with Acrylic dabber paint.
A few little Idealogy gears, some glitter (it is Christmas after all) and some tinsel and hey presto one tag. I may just use this idea for my Brother's Christmas card!
Thanks for calling by and don't forget you can still join in with the Challenge which is being sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
