THE TIM HOLTZ 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 7

I would have to say Tim's tag from today was my favorite.  I can't say the same about my own.  I did not have the glassine paper but I had a roll of paper that seemed similar.  I did not do well with the inking.  I hand cut the holly leaves as I don't have a holly die.  I stamped my Merry Christmas and embossed with black embossing powder but it did not get raised and shiny like it should have so I added UTEE over all of it after cutting it out.  When I used crackle the other day I couldn't get it to crack.  Today, I could not keep the UTEE from cracking.  I opted to do a red background with the new Distress holiday edition and some Cranberry colorwash spray.  I added a mist of water and dried it.  I used cereal box covered with gold paint dabber to cut the Sizzix Bare Tree which I cut apart.  I used Snow Cap Mixative and Rock Candy Distress Stickles on the branches. I knotted a piece of tulle. I decided to use a rosette die centered with a rhinestone to add to the mix.  I used some gold ink on it and then assembled it and inked it with Red on the folds and edges.

Here is the result:
