I had no idea when I saw the first tag I would end up making them all. I'm posting my tag late due to some commitments on my blog, however I am running on time for getting them finished. I really love Tag #8. I love seeing all the layers and Steampunks. I did try combining the Steampunk elements with a Christmas feel. I do love to layer, layer, layer!
I had some vintage tags on hand and stamped a little Christmas stamp on it with some distressing it. I had access to the gold dauber but not the copper and silver. So, I embossed! Hey...it still works! I sanded the gears then added distressing stain to give it a worn look. I just picked up these cute brads to connect the hands and adhere it to the washer I used. It's all layered in there.
A little piece of tinsel is tied to a silver jingle attached to a wee light. This little white embellishment I have had for years. I sanded it down to help the ink to set then heat set it. This little stamp fits perfect!
I stamped this TH Santa on chipboard (ok cereal box) then popped in some distrssing inks to make Santa pop. I used Snow Cap for the white of Santa's beard applying it with my finger tip. I really like him like this.
I made 2 tags and this is my other one. The only difference is I added this cute little bottle full if silver beads. A pretty embellishment for this holiday tag!
Tags #9 and 10 are done. My tag 10 made my Mom Cry when I showed her. Ahhhh:) I'm am totally sad that tomorrow is the last day to make a tag!
