Tim's Tags Day Twelve - Peace

I have to say that my favorite tag from Tim is today's final tag.   I love the white and blue colors and the softness of the background.  That is what I tried to bring into my tag today.  I love the 12 days as he is always showcasing different techniques which inspire me to play with my inks, tools and just try something new.

 I have been wanting to use this Stampington angel on one of my twelve tags.  I used the sweet angel image  to replace the doll fragment Tim used. 

Quick run-down on what I did:
  1. Stamp on background of the tag Hero Arts Design Block - Damask using black ink. 
  2. Stamp Cornish Heritage Farms Scrapblock - Music sheet onto tissue paper about 4 times. 
  3. Run tape over the surface of the tag. Layer on stamped tissue paper.  Repeat multiple times tearing excess and re-applying. Cut off excess tissue paper around the edges.
  4. Coat with Distress Crackle Paint.  This caused the tag to bend and warp. So when it dried I attached it to a piece of re-cycled cardboard. 
  5. Stamp angel onto white cardstock. Highlight with watercolor pencils. Versamark entire surface and heat emboss using Kaleidoscope embossing powder. 
  6. Stamp tissue paper with music background. Cut in long strip. Fold every 1/4" back and forth (fan). Tie in center. Trim edges and fluff to flower. Spritz with glimmer mist. Apply glue along edges and glitter. 
  7. Attach frill and tinsel along bottom. 
  8. Cut house shape from thin chipboard. Emboss with embossing folder. Paint with white and blue paints. Apply blue dye ink over embossed areas. 
  9. Stamp O Holy Night and cut. Sponge edges with blue dye ink. Attach to house. 
  10. Pop Dot angel and apply to house. 
  11. Apply dye ink, silver paint to sticker letters.  Apply glue pen and glitter. 
I forgot one little detail. I made a wire halo for my angel.  It is hard to see but so cute IRL!

**** Edited to add *****

I just realized I forgot to pick the winner of my blog candy....  Drumroll please...
