Merry Christmas - Another Tim tag

Hi everyone,

Jeez, the time went by fast. Tomorrow is already Christmas. And therefor I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry christmas!! Hope you enjoy yourselves during this gerat holiday! And I also wanted to share one more christmas themed project.
I'm entering this tag for Simon Says Stamp and Show and Our Creative Corner challenge. For OCC, my inspiration is a bow, I have bows everywhere.
During the first 10 tags of 12 tags of Christmas from Tim, I didn't have alcohol inks. And this seemed like a good time to practice the techniques that Tim used for tag 5 and 7. I don't have many different colors, so I had to work with all the colors I had. Green-ish, blue-ish and silver. I kept the tag very simple, mainly because I want to show the techniques it did. I didn't get the right result for the technique of tag 5, but I actually like the outcome also.
The result:

The required materials:
  • Transparent sheet
  • Alcohol Ink: Lettuce, Silver, Pool, Stream
  • Alcohol blending solution
  • Stamp: Tim Holtz
  • Aluminum foil
  • Glassine kraft paper
  • Uni-ball pen: white
  • Ribbon

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a Merry Christmas!
