Twelve Tags – Day Four

2011TimsTag#4Love the tag Tim Holtz has up for today… I think rock candy crackle paint is a great addition to any project.  On this tag I also used paint, distress inks, and distress stains.

Tim has a wonderful idea using a shape die in the belly of the snowman.  I don't have the one he used so I used a heart (Tim/Sizzix) instead and filled it with Glossy Accents by Ranger.  The snowman is a Sizzix die as well.

I added some MM metal snowflakes, a bit of blue fuzzy rickrack, some “coal” for eyes and mouth, and a candy cane.

Are you playing along?  Let me know in your comment so I can come see what you're up to!

    I really likw the colors in this one! And I really loved Tim’s technique with the cut out and Glossy Accents. I had a lot of fun with that part. Yours came out great. Love the “coal”!

    I love how your snowman has personality with a face and a heart – seems really poignant that if he were real he’d eventually melt away – think this is truly beautiful x

    Love this one Marjie. I haven’t even been to Tim’s blog yet today. Shopped with my oldest daughter today and then back for second half of Packer game so just getting to the computer now.
