{ 12 tags of Christmas - Day 5 }

This tag was really fun to create. I love, love, love the paint and embossing technique that Tim explains in steps 1 - 12. I think that mine looks like yellow paint, but it is green. I used regular craft paint. I used a make up sponge to apply it. I printed my reindeer on paper, traced it on grungeboard and cut it out. I did emboss it and it was as easy as he says. He has a VIDEO on how to do that. I did not have the flourish so I stamped mine with Impression Obsession stamp in gold ink. The gold wasn't as bright and I used a gold pen to add some more color. I was not happy so I applied gold glitter glue, just like on the stars. They are Tim's grungeboard, I did not have any snowflakes that small. I made my own holly leaves and I had the beaded trim. I stamped "Noel" with white craft ink, but it was dull so I applied 3D paint over it. I have to work on Day 6 tag. This one had so many steps that I did not have time to finish it last night. The one from today is so pretty. Tim's tag. I wanted to share with you some photos of my little helper. We decorated the outside with lights today and worked on the tree last night. Alex loves playing with the ornaments.
