Tim Holtz December Tags

Hi all, can't believe it took me a couple of days messing around doing some tags lol.  I really wanted to be able to play with my distress stains and distress markers so I took my time :-)
Here are Mr Tim Holtz (click his name to be sent wheezing off to his famous blog) stunning tags.


And here is my take on them :-)




Now initially I was going to buy re-inkers, but before I wrote my crimbo list I actually watched Tim's video's for distress stains and found out that they will re-act with water but the re-inkers wouldn't as you already put water into them so luckily I asked for distress stains lol. I had non of the metal distress stains so I added perfect pearls sprayed on the tag instead.  The red distress stain covered beautifully but for some reason the broken china left two saturated lines either side, I have covered them up below but you can just about see some of them, so I think alot more practise is ahead lol.

Right I shall be off, thinking of finally putting some of my Christmas craft away, think it's time to stop lol, I just wish I had done alot more, next year I shall be making sure on my birthday 1st September that crimbo will come out again early, so when I have to have my injections in December and am ill, all crimbo will be done lol lol.  I have so many new bits that I haven't used that next year I really should not buy anything for crimbo crafts, mind you I am wanting some TH sizzix and festive stamps so apart from them I shall be good. Please don't remind me next year when I start buying lol, all good intentions shall be out the window when September comes and all the new winter crafts come out lol lol. Right I'm going as I'm waffling!!!!

The background and snow make the tag look very frosty. Such pretty trim too. Your poinsettia is lovely and love the shine on it.
