12 Tags of 2015 / Holiday Cards Series - November Inspiration

Hi Friends!! I'm having so much fun creating cards for the 
12 Tags of 2015 / Holiday Card Series and I'm learning lots of new tricks from Tim. The inspiration is from the November tag (one of my favorites). The cards have awesome techniques...paint resist, dimensional watercolor and distress foiling. The full tutorial is over on the Tim Holtz blog.

The background technique on this cards is done with Distress Paint and Distress Spray Stains and the results are beautiful. Also the Metallic Kraft-Core cards are perfect for the Holidays.
