Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods. I've always been a lover of vintage Santas. All of the techniques used are based on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas 2011 and all of the stamps used are from Snowy Woods. Santa was stamped in India Ink on watercolor paper and colored with markers. I cut out the face using a circle die and used him as the focal point of my rosette. The sentiment was stamped on a die cut tattered banner which was colored with old paper distress ink and edged with vintage photo. The background snowflakes were stamped with broken China distress ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The tag was then covered with iced spruce distress ink and embossed again with clear embossing powder. The greenery was die cut using Core'dinations paper. The bling in the corner was a gift to me.
I am entering my tag into several challenges: Simon Says Stamp and Show -- Tim themed tag; Critter Sketch -- Let It Snow; and Created by Hand - Christmas/Red and Green.
