Golden Christmas

Tim's Tag #8 is a fun  steampunk tag...  I veered quite off the path this time... :)


I had previously embossed this folder and if you could see the other side you could see how many tries it takes me in the morning to get a tag done!  I flipped over the failure from earlier this week and used the manila side that had the embossing from the folder. 

Recipe:
  1. Smear on with a sponge Aged Mahogeny, Evergreen Bough, and Gathered Twigs over the entire surface. 
  2. Smear white acrylic paint to soften the colors.
  3. Smear versamark over embossed areas and heat emboss with Queen's Gold embossing powder.
  4. Distress edges with distressing tool. Smear edges with black archival ink. 
  5. Ink up  Chipboard Time Piece with Versamark. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Distress edges with distressing tool and smear black ink over the edges. 
  6. Cut holly leaves and smear Viva - Gold over leaves to add gold tinges. 
  7. Stamp Artistic Outpost - Snowy Woods - Santa onto white cardstock using black ink. Color with watercolor pencils. Cut out
  8. Stamp music background (Artistic Outpost - Ephemeral Backgrounds) using black ink on white cardstock and sponge over with brown dye ink. 
  9. Stamp Joyuex Noel onto white cardstock using black ink. Stamp music background over with black ink. Sponge brown dye ink over surface. 
  10. I smeared gold on the key and charm to blend in with my golden tag. 
Hope your week is going well!
