12 Tags of Christmas, Day 1

OK, So I've been away, (not really gone, lurking here and there), but haven't posted in awhile.  Had to get my head around a few things. And as a wiser person than me said, "If you aren't going to medicate it, get over it".  So it's craftherapy and I'm right as rain. 

So If you haven't noticed, Tim H has started his 12 Tags of Christmas, and I am playing along just like everyone else.  Click here to see Tim's First Tag of Christmas

Tim did a super fab job on his tag.  I did my best.  I tried the embossed coredinations paper and really didn't like the results I got.  It looked ok but not where I wanted to go , so I embossed the snowflakes and hit them with a little tea dye, but I think the blending tool had gathered twigs on it and it came out darker than I anticipated.  Then I spritzed the whole thing with home made glimmer mist of antique paper and heirloom gold perfect pearls.  I use MS antique gold glitter for the "25" and made the wreath from most of the parts from the Festive Greenery (x4).  Holly leaves were embossed with green tinsel and pearl luster jade powders.  I don't have the tattered banners so I made my own banner, stamped it and highlighted with picket fences stickles.  I used red stickels for the holly berries.

I will be entering this at Simon Says Stamp and Show as well as Inspiration Emporium Tim Holtz 12 Tags.
