12 Tags of 2012- December

     Its that time again! Christmas is on its way and of course, Tim has a December Tag for us!! I was So excited for this tag because winter is one of my favorite seasons, so I just new that tim would have a fantastic tag for us this month, and he did not dissapoint! Instead of one tag.. theres two tag! so i picked my favorite to remake for this months tag. I picked the blue snowman tag because I just loved everything about it! heres a link to tims blog post:

 I am also entering this tag in the Simon Says Stamp and Show contest! if you have not seen this blog you should definatley check it out!
Here's the tag I created:

and if you want to see how I made this... read below:) additional pictures will be at the bottem

I Started with a plain tag and some broken china distress stain I covered the tag in the stain and sprayed it with water. then I took another tag and stained it with brushed pewter distress stain. after the brushed pewter tag dried, I Put the tag in my Circut machine and cut out three snowflake designs. i used Rock Candy distress stickles to add some glitter to the snowflakes. I also hand cut letters out of grundge board to spell "joy" and then stained them with brushed pewter distress stain, and when dry, used white glitter Glue to add the look of snow at the top of the letters.
I also added some broken sapphire distress stain to the background of the tag to add dimension.

Then I stamped the snowman blueprint stamp on to a piece of water color paper and cut it out and colored it in with distress inks with water.
Now it's time to put the tag all together!

First I glued down the snowflakes and the snowman at the top of the tag, then at the bottom, I layed down a piece of lace and put a piece of tissue tape ontop of that. I Hot Glued the letters ontop of that. then lastly, a piece of glittery blue ribbon and a red ribbon tied at the top to finish off the tag!
and Done!
Thats it! Thank you for reading:) heres some additional pictures.
