But....... over the past couple of years I've been experimenting with Tim's style on and off - and on the way - gathering more and more Tim Holtz/Ranger 'supplies'. SO - having seen a tag on my blogging friend, Susan's, blog where she linked to Tim's challenges - I got inspired to give the 12 Tags of Christmas a try!
Day 1 Tag - You really need to go to Tim's Blog to see his sample - but here is my inspired tag. I used a lot of his ideas but with the supplies that I had in my craft room. I used his tattered flower die instead of his pine cone and I used some of his grunge board flourishes instead of the floral pieces. My Noel letters are Thickers that were already blue and sparkly!
here. And below is mine. I didn't have a deer die - so I used a Sizzix Snowman, cutting the hat and scarf piece out of felt and adding 2 brads for his eyes. . I used a lot of Dazzling Diamonds on this tag so it looks pretty snowy IRL!
