12 Tags Day 5

Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas is in full swing this year again and this is the first one I have had a go at so far - Day 5.  I couldn't get the Archival Ink to remove the alcohol ink so I stamped with Blending Solution.  That worked - kinda!  Holly punch to make the wreath.

Card Tag, Acetate Tag, Red Pepper Alcohol Ink, Hero Arts Artistic Circles Stamp, Papermania sentiment, White Embossing Powder, Holly Punch, Pearls, white ribbon, seam binding.

Then I had a go at the Bonus Tag from Day 5.

I didn't have the sticky sheets of foil to make the bauble tops so used a silver pen instead.  I didn't know if you can heat emboss onto fragments - just about got away with it but one of them started to melt! Touched the silver pen to the centre of some of the background snowflakes too, and used the pen to 'hang' the baubles.

Distress Inks:  Iced Spruce, Tumbled Glass
Stamps: Sentiment - from the Goody Bag at Create with Kate's event, sorry don't know the brand.  Snowflake stamp is from Papermania.
Fragments, Seam Binding, Uni Ball Signo Broad silver pen.

Crafting Ireland  have a prize up for grabs on their Facebook page for uploaded tags.

Thanks for visiting. Ger x.
