12 Tags of Christmas, Day 4

Alrighty, it's day 8 for the 12 Tags of Christmas, Tim is chugging along, and I am trying like mad to keep up.  Actually I'm working at my normal slow, methodical pace.  I'm just glad that I have the time to craft again.

So for Day 4 Tim did a really cool, snow inspired tag using crackle paint,  check it out. Pretty impressive. 

We haven't had any snow since that freaky bit just before Halloween, so I found inspiration in the green, brown and yellows from our great outdoors.  My snowman is painted with silver and gold, and yes I hear Burl Ives as the snowman singing.  Since me is metallic I thought I would steam punk things a bit and used the on the edge gears instead of snowflakes.  For the background I used peel paint, wild honey and picket fence stains.  I added gears, where Tim used buttons.  The ribbon was a magical offering from the craft table, as it appeared just as I needed it.  Thanks for looking.

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