12 Tags Of Christmas #12

Yes I have swept straight from #1 to #12, stopping only to make notes of a few techniques along the way.  I guess 2 tags completed are better than none, right?
I have added my own slant, of course, to Tim's 12th tag.  I didn't have the lovely tissue wrap for a start, although it is now firmly on my wish list, so I made my own by stamping Donna Salazar music text onto some paper that came wrapped around a scrapbook order.
The background is inked, water splattered, stamped in silver with another of Donna's fab stamps and then coated in Rock Candy Distress Stickles.
My chipboard shape is a little Maya Road house, inked in VersaMagic Oasis Green and edged in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The windows have been filled with Sepia Accents and then some Picket Fence Distress Stickles have been added for snow.
Finally a couple of sticky words from The Girls Paperie.


It's tag week at Try It On Tuesday with an open theme so, if you are making and sharing tags, don't forget to link up over at their challenge blog too.
I made a few more Christmas cards last night but someone has stolen the sun this morning so no photos available yet.  If the skies lighten up a bit I will try and take some pictures later.

I love it! I found the pic at Tim Holtz' blog, so I clicked to get a closer look. It's really cute, not as über-kitschy as many others ;)
