Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas #7
This tag took three complete attempts. I don't have a Santa stamp...not even a little one...so I tried a kitty with a Santa hat---bad choice. When I decided to use one of my many face stamps, I mistakenly used gold Distress embossing powder on the next-to-last step. Start over! I like the result, but the colors are definitely not as vibrant as the one Tim made. Maybe I got carried away with the flourishes in white acrylic paint. (By the way....the purchased mask material isn't necessary at all. I stamped on a transparency and used Scotch clear double-sided tape to use it as a mask.) Although it's barely visible, there is a line of red and green Stickles above the image, as well as a little Stickles accent at the lower edge.
It's midnight and the house is creaking in the 3-degree temperature!
