12 Tags of Christmas - Day 10

Today is a special day!
Not only have I managed to join in for 10 days in a mean feat!!!
I'm celebrating with T!m (in my dreams) LOL
But seriously how else would I be able to have a one to one session with Tim Holtz?
And for free to boot!!!........I'm embracing the experience.
Here is my day 10 tag.
12 tags of Christmas day 10
Quite honestly......although it don't look too bad on the photo!....this was a disaaaaaaaaaarster as Craig would say on SCD.
My lucky streak continued as I had some chipboard letters and some metal tape my DH had that I thought would suffice as a substitute for the Ten Seconds Studio metal stuff! How wrong can you be? The chipboard stuff was in the main way too big for the tag......I ended up using some peel offs......yep........the "dreaded"....and stuck them on chipboard to cut out the smaller letters.....however :) I discovered that you can get a fabby effect with the embossing as they provide extra patterns!! Take a look see at the bauble.......additionally I don't know if the paint dabbers react differently but the black acrylic I had simply wiped most of the alcohol inks off!!!!!!!! I had to go back and dab more alcohol inks on and hope for the best!!! LOL......The metal tape is not very thick and does not stand up to the rubbing down so the elements are not as shiny either!!! Hey HO!
Thanks for looking
xoxo Sioux
P.S. I'm trying to leave comments but my computer is on a go slow....a very nice man is supposed to be coming tomorrow to take a look.
