THE TIM HOLTZ 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 12

Today is the Grand Finale of the Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas tag series.  It was great fun to participate even though I chose to make cards rather than tags.  Today, I took my inspiration from Tim's tag as far as the colors - a beautiful blue, white and silver and many of his products but mine took on a totally different look.  First I started with Broken China Distress stain for my background and I covered that with the Music Tissue Tape.  I took a cereal box and covered it with Aluminum Duct Tape and ran it through an embossing folder and die cut letters for PEACE.  I stained the letters with blue alcohol ink then I mounted them on black cardstock shadows.  I stamped an angel image and embossed it with silver.  I cut it out and also mounted it on black leaving a very narrow border just to make the angel stand out more the way the letters had.  I added some blue gems in the centers of the snowflakes.  I made a rosette with a piece of lace, added a silver ribbon flower and put them both on a piece of silver tinsel.  I really enjoyed working on this one.  I have participated everyday and I am really going to miss it tomorrow morning.



Hope you have enjoyed viewing my cards.  Tomorrow I will decide who is getting which one and address them and get them out in the mail.

Have a peaceful blessed holiday season!
