Tim Tag #6

   I'm trying to make my version of the 2011 12 Tags of Christmas created by Tim Holtz.  I have been using materials that I have on hand, so this tag is not exactly like Tim's but created in the "spirit" of his tag.  The original was created using a Sizzix collage folder which I don't have, but I do have a Cuttlebug collage folder which I used.  The idea of the tag is to emboss on metal and color areas of the tag.  I used metallic tape on a tag, embossed, then colored using alcohol inks.  The top of the tag is embellished with red mesh wired ribbon and a hand made embellishment I received in a previous swap.  I tried to take a photo but there was too much reflection, so I attempted to scan.  That didn't work very well, but at least you can get an idea of what it looks like.  
     The good news is that I have completed 6 of the 12 tags ------ looks like I will be finished soon now that things have quieted down.
