THE TIM HOLTZ 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 11
Today Tim did a very Jolly Santa on a beautiful blue background. He used a melting pot, shrink plastic, alcohol inks and UTee to make embellishments. I had a very busy day today and only got to working on my tag this evening. I did not have any shrink plastic (or a melting pot) so I used packaging and UTee and very small diecut leaves and a tree branch. I colored them with alcohol inks. I did my background with several shades of blue Distress inks and stains on glossy cardstock. The background still looked too plain so I ran it through a holiday embossing folder for some texture. I stamped my Santa and HoHoHo in black on glossy cardstock. I used red Distress ink and Walnut stain Distress ink on blending foam to color Santa and his reindeer. I used Forest Green Distress stain to color the HoHoHo. I added a bit of white Liquid Pearls for the snow on top of the letters. I used foam tape to pop up the Santa and HoHoHo like Tim did. Up in the corner I added my plastic Utee branch and leaves. I added a few red pearls for the holly berries.
It's not my favorite but here it is:
Can't wait to see what Tim comes up with for the Grand Finale tomorrow!
