Tim's 12 Tags -- Day 4


Today's tag was another fun one -- and easy.  Which is good because our first snow is falling today and there's snow to be shovelled!
It did require me to cut in my Tim Holtz Seasonal Paper Pad (for the Santa paper background)  which I was very reluctant to do.   I guess I'll have to buy another pad just to look at.
I deviated a little from his tag, but now awfully much although  I did bring a bit of red into my tag.  The only ticket I had said "trust" so I kind of stamped "wish" on a piece of brown cardstock and stuck that over part of the ticket.


The coolest trick of today's tag was how Tim showed how to create this snowflake patterned blue facets.  You can see how he did it here.

Another fab tag - I had to have 2 goes at the snowflake trick, it didn't work first time, so I had to clean it off and start again!! Think yours looks great with the red accent pieces.

Fabulous tag, I love seeing everyone's take on Tim's tags. Love your embellishments and the red accents too. Lovely. Tracy Evans x x

It's beautiful! Great job on the facet!

I keep "forgetting" that I have that Tim paper. I believe I even went so far as to hide it from myself... Can't cut into what's not in front of you!! ;)

Fabulous take on the tag. Love the touch of red on the top. I too loved the alcohol effect on the pendant. Took me two tries though!

Fabulous, love your snowflake embellishment.

another lovely tag, the snowflake facet is beautiful, I think I might have to get some to try that technique, I like the touches of red too, I struggled with this one today.

Robyn said...

Love your take on the tags. The little things you change that makes it individual, like the red accents :).

I failed at the facet, but yours looks amazing! I am just giving up on alcohol inks. I really like the variations you made to Tim's tag (my least fave so far). I think the red really pops!

Nancy said...

Lori said...

Darling tag, Louise! Wish I had time to play along but no such luck. I'll enjoy seeing what others have created though. Can't wait to see what you create next:)

I like the pop of red - a good choice, and what a great way to make a ticket into what you need!
