Simon Says.... Tim & A Tag!!!

Oooh, I had a lovely afternoon yesterday faffing with all things Tim Holtz and have made a tag for my entry into the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge this week which is make a Tim Tag. I still haven't got past Day 3 of the 12 Tags of Christmas.... I have die cut all the pieces I need and that is my "thing to do" this evening... well, Grim is at work and Alfie is entertained with the Christmas tree, I have got all the shopping done (akkk... Morrison's at 8am... with about 500 people with the same idea as me lol) so a little time playing is in order methinks :O))



I coloured the tag with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo Distress Ink and sploshed a few dabbles of water on to it and then used the Crackle stamp and Vintage Photo to do a smidge of stamping on the background. I snipped some music score paper and popped this across the middle and then got all exciteable with Kraft Glassine paper.



The Pinecones are made from Glassine that was coloured with a few different brown Alcohol Inks... and then I used Gold Metallic Mixative and coloured a whole sheet with it... then scrumpled it up and dragged a Walnut Stain DI over the top.. loooove this antique and shabby look. I used some of the Pinecone paper to cut a lace border for the bottom of the tag and popped some gems over the top.




The baubles are coloured with Red Pepper Alcohol Ink to make berries and the larger ones were coloured with Gold Mixative... simply popping them into a baggy, squirting in the ink and giggling them about... how fab are they!!! I added some bling flourishes and added Idea-ology to decorate the tag and finished with a little Maya Road Star.




So... are you ready for Christmas? I am feeling very chuffty tuffty with myself this year... for the first time ever, I have all the gifts wrapped, cards made and sent, food shopped for... bread in the freezer cos we always run out in those two long days that the shops are shut (ahemmmm... takes tongue out of cheek) and... most importantly... a clear desk and tidy room! I know! I shall have to give this old halo a polish you know! Anyways... I had better get moving... I have 9 Tim Tags to make... oh and... the Sunday Stamper is actually starting tomorrow being as it is Christmas Day on Sunday.... so the challenge will be posted in the morning. Thanks for looking... TTFN
