Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest and the DT have made :-)


I used the largest tag in a Tim Holtz  Tag Collection Die Set to cut 2 using some Watercolor Paper and Soft Navy Card Stock. I then splattered the paper with Distress Resist and when it was dry I  blended Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Inks over the top.


I then used a gorgeous Shifter Stars Layering Stencil, White Embossuing Paste and a sprinkling of Prisma Glitter to add texture and sparkle to the background. I colourd the tree from a Merry Moose Die Set using  Gathered Twigs Ink and added some glittery icicle to the branches.




 I used a couple of the deer from a Winter Wonderland Dies Set and used little drops of the Distress Resist on their backs befre coloruing with the same Oxide ink.

I finished with a torn snowdrift and a Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Christmas Word Band


Now this tag will be attached to a very special Christmas Gift 
 Which one will have to remain to be seen ;-) 

I am currently visiting family and friends in the UK so I will catch up with ya'll when I get back ;-)
