Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas: Day 3!
Is the 12 Tags of Christmas a blast, or what?? I'm have such a great time playing along with Tim Holtz and the huge, international (interplanetary?) group of artists creating these cool seasonal tags every day. I hope you're playing along, too!
Today's tag, which you can see on Tim's blog, uses his very cleverly designed stamp/embossing folder combo to mimic the look of a letterpress. The stamped image aligns perfectly with the embossing, creating a fabulous raised letter effect. SO stinking smart! Love, love, LOVE this idea!
As with the first two tags, my own version is a complete ripoff of Tim's original, with the tiniest little tweak. Instead of the Alcohol Inked bling, I colored a strip of white satin ribbon with Fired Brick Distress Stain and folded a little Christmas rose. I also tossed in a few sparkly snowflakes.
Wow-- it's nearly tomorrow, and almost time for Tag 4! I'd better hit the "Publish" button! Have a wonderful evening/morning/afternoon... wherever you may be!
