THE TIM HOLTZ 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 4
For today's tag I actually had some of the right materials - in different colors or types/styles but closer than I've been on any other day. First take a look at Tim's and then I will tell you all about mine.
To start, I didn't have grungeboard but I did have a Sizzix snowman die and snowflake die which I cut from a cereal box. I didn't have the white stain so I used white gesso. I cut the scarf and hat from felt. Next I coated the snowman and snowflake with clear crackle accents as I didn't have the rock candy crackle paint. I didn't get the nice crackles that Tim did but it does have an icy glaze to it. I didn't have the Picket Fence stain so I used Faded Jeans and Broken China. I misted my card front and dragged it through the stain. I added more Broken China stain as I wanted a bit deeper of a color. I then took some snowflake stamps and stamped on with Faded Jeans stain. I used Snow Cap Alcohol Ink to stamp a white swirl. Finally the snowman and snowflake were dry and I was able to adhere them to the card front!
Here's the result:
I hope you are all enjoying Tim's Tags and my cards. Please come back again tomorrow for Day 5.
