I used my same metal tape that I buy at the hardware store. btw I got this tip from Jack & Cat Curio from one of their videos.
I embossed the tag with the snow flakes. I did not cut the metal and glue it on the top as Tim did, I simply turned the tag around and placed it carefully in the embossing folder and it worked out fine.
We are not well stocked in the acrylic paints, so I took the pearl dabber on my craft sheet and tinted the paint with broken china and chipped sapphire re-inkers. Painted the whole thing, sanded lightly. I used broken china distress ink and a clear sparkle embossing powder, let it cool and coated the whole thing with UTEE. The tree is painted with juniper dabber and brushed with pine needle and peeled paint DI, UTEE and swiped with picket fence stickles. The star is similar treatment as the tag but darker blues. Now I must get some sleep in order to craft some more. (5 hours was ok when I was a wee lad, but dads need more)
Also I am entering this tag in Gingersnap Creations GC129 - Starry Night Challenge check out all the cool artwork there.
I will be entering this at Simon Says Stamp and Show as well as Inspiration Emporium Tim Holtz 12 Tags.
