12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 3



Here is my version of Tim Holtz's Day 3 Tag. This one took ages! After several attempts at making the plaid background with alcohol inks, I finally had one I liked. Then after stamping the Santa and whilst splodging Pearl Dabber around to make the snow effect, I managed to drop the brush on it leaving a very large splodge!! I was not going to start all over again, so I improvised and put a grungeboard bauble over the spot and hopefully managed to disguise it. I inked some string with Distress Inks and edged the tag with a bit of silver to pull it all together. It isn't one of my favourite ones but I had a go!

Brilliant Lesley. I love the plaid and the bauble covers up the splodge so well!
I really must catch up with Tim's tags. I haven't even had a peak yet!!
