Not having Distress Stains - I put drops of Pumice Stone and Antique Linen re-inkers on my craft mat - spritzed them with water and dragged my tag through it - I think it gives pretty much the same effect as the stains. I used my Bare Tree die from Sizzix for the twigs - painting them gold, dabbing them with white acrylic paint and adding some silver stickles.
Not having Tim's stamps - I stamped a crackle panel by Rubbernecker on the tag for background and my sentiment is from Seasonal Remedies by Waltzingmouse - it says "Tincture to aid in the attainment of PEACE on Earth"
I learned a lot of fun techniques with this tag today! I'll definitely be looking for some of that Kraft Glassine paper!
I've got some evening events coming up the next couple of days (A Christmas party and a Christmas Symphony!) - so I'll probably be posting two tags at a time every other day over the weekend - I hope I can keep up!
