THE TIM HOLTZ 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 6

Good Morning Day 6!  Today, Tim used foil, embossing folders, paint, and embossing powder to make a great metal sign look to the tag.  Be sure to check his out here.

I used some more of my huge roll of Aluminum Duct Tape on some glossy cardstock. I used a Sizzix Santa embossing folder. I didn't have that many colors of acrylic paint so I substituted Sharpie markers and some Stickles for some of the colors.  When I used the Walnut Ink it made my whites too brown so I wiped off, re-whitened my white spaces and used clear Versa Mark to prep it for the Utee Clear Embossing Powder.  Since I am making cards rather than tags I then took my card and covered it with a red and white patterned paper and then adhered my 'faux metal' Santa tag.

Here he is:

Hope you enjoyed another day of my card version of Tim's wonderful tags!
