christmas tags - it's about time!

I am really sorry for neglecting my blog so much. I still check on it quite often, read other blogs, leave comments for people etc. but have just not found the time to update my own! Im sure you all know what that's like. I haven't been crafting as much as I would like either. At school the end of our term is comming up which means unit tests, essays and finals. I have also been busy with Ringette too. I hope you can forgive my slacking! To make up for it, I am posting 3 tags tonight! Enjoy! I kept this one pretty simple so the cool background wouldn't be taken over. I got this awesome effect by misting the tag with water, crunching it up, misting it with some brown ink/glimmer, inking the high points and finally sponging in some red and blue. I also stamped on it with the alpha stamp from Tim's set "school desk"
This vintage button is absolutely awesome! I found it at my favourite store/place of employment. Scrappin' With Friends!
Here you can really see all the pretty colours and texture.
This second tag was sometihing I created just for my mom. She loves blue and loves snowflakes. I used a similar technique as the previous tag minus the water mist and instead used Ranger re-inker. It does make a difference! Softer easier blending of colour. The stamps are all Stampin up.
I tied a bell to each end of the ribbon and tied a bow around the top part. Added some embroidery floss too.
This tag was based on one Tim Holtz made for his 12 tags this year. I modified it only slightly based on the products I had on hand. For further instruction check out his blog here
