I must admit I do miss the 12 tags of Christmas quite a bit. It's amazing that Tim now makes a tag for us every month, but the 12 tags of Christmas was such a happening and I liked it so much. It was my first year last year, and I want more! Well luckily we can, because this week's challenge of Simon Says Stamp and Show is to dive into the archive of his Christmas Tags and pick a tag that inspires you most. Mine is tag of day 1, 2009. The background is really amazing and the whole tag is so beautiful.
I wanted to use colors that fit with my Christmas decorations and that is lime, black, brown and a little gold and silver. For this tag I wanted to use some new products, such as Rock Candy Glitter Dry. I absolutely love this glitter.
I have made 3 colors Dry Glitter. I can never have enough black, and for Christmas I also need some lime green.
The reindeer is stamped with black ink and then coated with some Glossy Accents and then coated with black Dry Glitter. The same way I did the holly, but then with green Dry Glitter and green ink.
The background is made with the wrinkle free distress technique. Then I put a thick layer of Rock Candy Crackle Paint on top. After it was dry I inked up the edges with walnut stain.
