As I was in Australia when the challenge went live and I had forgotten to schedule it (duh) I could not post it then, so I am sharing it today, and boy, time certainly does fly!! I can't believe we are nearly half way through January already.....
I used a size 12 tag as the base and added some texture with the help of a Tim Holtz layering stencil and some clear texture paste. I crinkled it up a bit for some more texture and then coloured with Distress Spray stains in Brushed Pewter, Antique Linen and Iced Spruce.
I also did some background stamping with the help of a text and crackle stamp.
Next I worked on the central panel made from some corrugated card.
I tore the bottom edge, added some gesso and texture sand paste (Decoart) and when that had dried added some patches of colour with the help of some Black Soot and Vintage Photo Distress Ink Sprays.
On to the embellishments:
I die cut and embossed a variety of dies, the Tim Holtz Layered wings, some snowflakes and an element from the Spellbinders Iron Accents die and coloured them with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. I also added some Vintage Platinum Distress Glitter Dust to the wings.
The focal point was a clock cut from one of my papers I designed for the C'est Magnifique Christmas collection. I added some crackle with a crackle stamp to it.
Now all I needed to do was layer it all up together, and finally mount the tag on some dark green card.
The sentiment was created with the help of some letter stickers from my stash.
