Tag # 13

Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week is a Tim Holtz Inspired Tag.  I had bits and pieces left over from the flurry of tag creating for the last couple of weeks so I pulled them together into another tag.
 I had this lovely background leftover from my blog header.  I created it by mixing glimmer mist and chalkboard mist together on white cardstock..  (Patina Glimmer Mist and Decadence Chalkboard)  The next step was to stamp the beautiful swirling snowflake from the Stampendous Jumbo Cling using versamark and embossing with the Stampendous Silver Tinsel.  I then highlighted areas of the swirls using white gel pen.  After that was all done I covered the entire surface with versamark and clear embossed it.  I repeated that several times. 

Then I created a tag shape.  Smeared the edges with versamark and added a layer of gold embossing powder around the edges.  The angel was created last week. But I added to her today.  I stamped her using black ink. Watercolored her with a touch of blue and skin color.  I had her framed in this time piece from Tattered Angels.  I poured a layer of Kaleidoscope embossing powder into the frame and heat embossed from underneath.  I then did the same with clear embossing powder to create a layer of glaze with shimmer.

The rest was just digging through my piles of embellishments to find fun bits and pieces to decorate the tag.

Hope you are getting ready for your holidays. :)  We have school party, cookie party, cleaning etc... But all fun things to get ready for the main event. Thanks for stopping by...
