The 12 Tags of Christmas - #5

Wow - I'm up to tag #5!  Keeping pace with the Master Tim!  Check out  Tim's blog for his tag and his description of all of the wonderful techniques he uses!   I get so excited each day when I see his tag - thinking about what supplies I have and I can't wait to get home from work and get into my craft room!!  Here's my Tag #5.
I did not have a 'backwards stamp' sentiment so I couldn't use his alcohol inks on acetate technique.  Instead - I used the alcohol inks (Cranberry, Wild Plum and Rust) on a piece of glossy card stock, then white embossed my sentiments on top!

I used three sentiments from Compliments of the Season by Waltzingmouse.

I do have the Regal Crest Die  he used for the wreath (Yippee!) and the Lettuce Paint Dabber so I made the wreath pretty much like he did adding the pearls and the ribbon.  I even had the netting to loop through the top!

I love how this came out!   so festive and Christmasy! Between the glossy card stock, the alcohlol inks and the white embossing - this tag is REALLY shiny IRL

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Compliments of the Season
Paper:  Glossy white card stock - SU, White - PTI,  rectangle coaster
Ink:  Adirondack Alcohol Inks - Wild Plum, Cranberry, Rust, Versamark.
Accessories:  Hot gun, glue dots, wrinkled seam tape - Prairie Bird Boutique Etsy Shop, white embossing powder, Regal Crest Die - Tim Holtz Alterations, netting - from my stash, sticky pearls - Michaels.
