12 Tags of Christmas Tags #10,11 and 12

Lets get to it!

Here is Tim's #10 Tag.

For this one I created a tag that will be pop doted to the tray. 


This is a favorite of mine. The facets are so beautiful with the metal behind them. The metal makes it look like old time vintage mercury glass ornaments. It's truly amazing. 

Moving right along this is Tag # 11 from Tim's.

The #11 Tag was my most challenging. The Santa was so large and I was limited on space. Why not use shrink plastic? The effect is the same just stamp your image first with Archival Ink, cut it out, shrink it with a heat tool and color on the back with alcohol inks. 


The last and final tag. Tag #12 from the master.

My configuration box.

Save the best for last! I just love the shabby chic look of this tag. 
It just glistens in the light from the Rock Candy Distress Stickles. 

Put them all together and you have this amazing display of Christmas goodness! 
Wow!
Thank you Tim Holtz for all your amazing creativity, inspiration, dedication, and hard work. 
Thank you Mario for all the BTS (behind the scene) footage, photos you take and hard work! 
Thanks to all of you for stopping in to see what I've been up to.
