Holiday Wishes

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog. I know you are gearing up for Christmas. I hope you will take some time to relax and enjoy the many wonders of this blessed season.

Here is a tag I made for Tim Holt's 12 Tags of 2013 ( Dec.) challenge. I love the frosted film that he used. You can see Tim's demo here. I do not have any of frosted film, but it is certainly on my wish list! I made a version of this of my own. .

I laid acetate on top of a Super Adhesive sheet from Sparkle N Sprinkle that had one side peeled off. I then cut out the flower shapes using the Tattered Flowers sizzix die. Transparent Sparkle glitter form Sparkle N Sprinkle was used on the back side after the protective sheet was removed. This gave the acetate a frosted look. I then sponged on permanent ink colors to the front of the flowers and leaves.

I used a stipple brush to pounce Versa Mark ink over the flower and tag and then added Sparkle N Sprinkle Belgian Cream embossing powder over it to look like snow.

On the swirl I used the new Green Marbled Christmas embossing powder also from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Once again, thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is great!
