If Tim Holtz were a Canadian...


Canadian Tag EH?
 
What if Tim Holtz was a Canadian?  His patriotic tag may look something like this... only better.  I wanted to make a tag with a few Canadian goodies to go with Scrappy Moms Stamps new stamp set, Proudly Canadian. 

Couldn't make something crafty and not include a Moose.

The moose is painted with the Espresso acrylic dauber paint and sanded down for a distressed look.  Have you ever seen a Moose...BIG!

Using SMS set Proudly Canadian I stamped this sentiment on a SU tag punch.  The Proudly Canadian set also comes with this adorable Canadian Maple Leaf stamp that I stamped in red.  I picked up the charms at Walmart.

Using my TH Word Play Big Die I cut out the EH using grunge board.  With the Black Soot dauber I painted the letter, sanded the edges, then I added Rock Candy for a crackled look.

Look how adorable these Walmart charms are.  Perfect for this Moose's neck.

I just picked up Autumn Gatherings strip die. Cutting in 4 colours I layered the leaves and coated the red maple leaf in Glossy Accents.

  2. Love your CDN tag! What a great idea. It's odd how we rarely think to paper craft with our icons and how difficult they can be to find in the first place. Thanks for sharing! :)
