Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 4

I originally wanted to make the wings side by side, but I couldn't figure out a way to make a whole angel without making it look to cartooney. So, I went the abstract route, stacking them. Hot glue does work great for the grungeboard, as Tim suggested in his post. I had a ton of fun layering the distress inks on the background and adding some white snowflakes with a stamp and gesso.

Since I didn't have a big word stamp and reinkers (although I have tried this technique in the past), or the matching embossing folders, I used some winter stamps I had, and then used clear UTEE over the words by restamping with Versamark Ink.

Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 2

Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 1

If you haven't checked out Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas series, you should! Better yet, get yourself a cup of tea and check out the past years' versions too, since this is the fifth year he's done it.

This is my interpretation of Tag 1. While I did not have his pinecone die, I used a very similar item from the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge to get the same effect.
