Hi All: Obviously this is my 12th tag for the 12 tags for 2014 which is the monthly challenge on the Tim Holtz Blog (timholtz.com). for this tag I didn't have a few of the items and so I improvised a little. I had to go hunting through my craft room which this month was a chore. I did the background technique which I totally love. I had the blue but not the silver so I tried using tarnished brass, even though the combination is pretty it wasn't the look I was going for so I did a total color change. I used peeled paint and tarnished brass. I really liked this combo. I then pulled out my tattered poinsettia die and went that way. To add a pop of color I went with red and silver accents. I sprinkled on my distress clear rock candy glitter. and done. And for my silver an idea-logy wreath . Hope you like it.

Happy Holidays Everyone: Seriously finding time to craft this time of year is a challenge !!! I really need to start my Christmas cards in August!! But I had to do this challenge. I had this log plaque in my stash, it inspired me to make a woodland scene. Hope you like it. . For this challenge I used some of the new distress stains- Peeled Paint and Walnut stain. I also used Walnut Stain distress paint for my letters then sprayed them with walnut stain spray and perfect pearls. Then I flicked Picked Fence distress paint everywhere. You can get all these items and more from the Challenges awesome sponsor- Inspiration Emporium (www.inpirationemporuim.com).
