sweet.love: Day 4 ~ Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas 2010

Well I've finally made it through to my 4th Tim Holtz tag, which is anything but Christmas themed. I've not had much time for crafting this week, what with Christmassy things going on! I am still determined to carry on working my way through the tags though and I've already done one more than I did last year!!


Now I should have learned my lesson from last year, that alcohol ink and me do not go. I didn't have any of the facets used in the project but did have the fragments and so used those. When I tried the alcohol ink technique, I either managed to dab away the whole of the ink, not just the image part or else the image left behind was not particularly exciting. 

So I contented myself with gluing my fragments to papers.

I used a piece of ruler paper with the number 14 on it and a clock image both cut from the Tim Holtz ~ Lost & Found paper stack and glued them on to the back of the fragments with glossy accents. I then embossed the edges with gold embossing powder and rubbed some rock candy stickles onto the clock face, before adding some game spinners and a little gem.


The tag was made out of Bo Bunny ~ Persuasion: My Sweet paper and the pink spotty paper is Making Memories.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

'show a Tim Holtz technique': Simon Says Stamp & Show.
'a self made present': Everybody Art.
'jewels & gems': ABC Challenge.

Thank you for looking.
