12 Tags of Christmas {day 3}

Happy Saturday... anyone out Christmas shopping today? My idea of an amazing Saturday was us organizing the office and my craft space. It always feels oh so good :)

I made it to Day 3 of 12 Tags of Christmas! Today's tag is a million times more my style, here's Tim's...

Tim Holtz's tag Day 3
Graphic subway art with something in the corner; I like this so much better! And I have to let you all in on a secret... I cheated with this one so hard. It took about 10 minutes total

my tag Day 3
I had this graphic word paper from the Recollections "Believe" stack (which i luuurrrve by the way) and the letters are already glittered up and everything. So for the base of the tag, I just cut the paper, distressed the edges with Tea Dye ink, and I covered some of the main words with Glossy Accents to give them a pop (since he texture embossed his, I wanted a 3D pop also). The holly leaves I cut from my Cricut with Joys to the Season cart, colored them greenish with chalk ink, and use Stickles "XMas Red" for the berries. Done!

I think tonight will be a painting night. I have a canvas covering our kitchen table, so I should probably get to it :)
