12 Tags Dec 2015

Wow, it's been a long time since I've done a tag from Tim's blog.  I was especially drawn to the burlap background.  He does such amazing work, I love trying to replicate his projects.

I had some burlap on hand but most of the other stuff I had to duplicate another way.

The scroll stencil I didn't have so I used the negative piece of his Elegant Flourishes die that I had in my stencil box.

The paper punches I didn't have but I did have the Festive Greenery die so I cut the branches out one at a time, that took a long time, lol.  I believe they are somewhat larger than the punches but I made them work.

I didn't have the bow tie die either so I free handed it, lol. It turned out pretty good, good enough anyway.

I didn't have the jingle brads but I did have little bronze and gold jingle bells.  The bronze ones I used just like they were and the gold ones I covered in silver mixative.  It helped tone down the gold a bit, it worked.

I used an old stencil brush with some white acrylic paint to make snow splatter and.........................

the words I had to print off the computer.  In order to make the background black, just use the excel spreadsheet and type out the words like you want them.  I used to have a font that looked alot like some of his stuff but it crashed with my last computer so alas I had to use a different font.  I will find the other one again though and reload on my new computer again.  Anyway, you just have to make the background black in the cells where you typed your words and it will print that way.  Pretty cool huh!

I didn't care for the sewing on the card so I decided to forego that, besides my sewing machine is covered with other things right now and the thread would not have matched.

I didn't have the mirrored stars either but I did have some clear pearly ones which I covered with mushroom alcohol ink.  It turned out well.

Tim didn't say what he colored the seam binding with at the top of the tag so I used some walnut spray stain on mine and added it.

Love how it turned out.  I love the vintage rustic look of it.

Thanks for checking it out!
Hugs,
