Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 11

Here is my version of tag 11 from Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas. I have to say I was a little unsure about making this one but I set myself the goal of making all twelve this year so had a go and photos just really do not do this tag justice! The distress inked glossy cardstock looks so beautiful in real life and I especially love the water splashes - looks just like snowfall! I inked the tag with tumbled glass and faded jeans distress inks before splashing with water and setting with my heat tool.

I'm a little disappointed with my "glass" shrinkie leaves - they're not really big enough! I don't have Tim's holly die so used my sizzix die and the leaves are clearly a lot smaller than Tim's die!

I didn't have the Santa stamp of Tim's either so used a Stemplelglede stamp instead. I inked the leaf areas with peeled paint distress ink and the berries with festive berries distress ink. I love how striking it looks against the blue!

Here's a shot to show how shiney the tag is - such a gorgeous glossy finish! The sentiment is also by Stempelglede, stamped onto glossy cardstock and then inked with festive berries distress ink. I'm so glad I tried this tag as the inked glossy cardstock is something I'm definitely going to be using again!

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
