Giant Tag

I love the new giant tags that Tim Holtz has introduced!  They are so fun to create on.  I used festive berries and evergreen bough distress inks for the background then used vintage photo around the edges.  I stamped the new blueprint snowman, the lamppost, and the background trees and snowflakes using black archival ink.  I then painted the snowman hat, holly, nose, arms and scarf and light in the lamppost with distress markers and the water pen I then used glossy accents over the word snowman, the holly on his hat, his scarf and the light in the lamppost just to make them pop a bit.  I really love the scene that was created.

Metal Sheet Snowman

Here is a metal sheet that I embossed with the snowman embossing folder.  I then cut out the small pine tree Tim Holtz painting it with paint dabbers and then popped it up using pop dots.  I colored the background of the metal sheet using alcohol inks then stamped the star using archival ink.  I then proceeded by using turquoise stickles to make the snowflakes on the snowman stand out. The snowman and his hat are colored with alcohol inks as well.  I adhered the metal sheet to a white foam board in which I stamped the background trees with black archival ink as well as the deer.  I made the deer stamp using foam and the dye cut from Tim Holtz. I rough cut the top of it to simulate mountain terrain. The dark black stamping onto the white foam board made the ground appear as if it was covered in snow.  My sister bought this at my last show and she has it displayed in her home this holiday season.  :)
