2 of T.Holtz'12 Days of Christmas


Tim Holtz started on the 1st of Dec. & for 12 days he does a tag & gives great tutorals.
Well I attempted Day 3 & Day 5.
This first picture is from Day 5 - I pretty much followed him, but I didn't do the enameled numbers. Anyway, I was pretty pleased on how this turned out....

This one is from Day 3 - I made a card instead of a tag & I love how it turned out for me. I couldn't get a "nest" made to look right ( probably cause I didn't have the right materials) so I planted the birds feet under the flower.


this 3rd pic. is a close up of the bird & the cool tissue tape flower that Tim shows how to make. Not bad for my first one...


Items used for both: Distress inks &/or re-inkers: cranberry;red pepper;aged mahagony;walnut stain;peeled paint;forest moss
Archival Inks: Jet Black; Cinnamon
stamps: santa;Merry Christmas
tissue tape
grungeboard
Distress crack paint: tea dye
paint dabber: snow cap white
forest green distress stickles & rock candy distress stickles
tag & bookplate die.
other: ribbon; tree stamp;background word stamp;branch
button
hope I didn't leave anything out.
Please take time to go to Tim Holtz blog & check out all his wonderful stuff. You can learn soooo much.
O.K. I will stop drooling (for now)...
untill next time.....
