Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas 2011 - Day 10

It is hard to believe that we are now on day 10 of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas!  Tim has all the instructions posted on his blog if you want to know the right way to do this!  I won't lie, I tried four times and maybe I rubbed the paper off too hard.  The images I ended up with were very faint and I was not going to waste a facet, so ended up just added the paper images to fragments.  I will practice, but needed to be done.   I wasted a trip to Michael's in search of kraft tags, so worked with what I had.  Here is my tag for #10 and will be linked at Inspiration Emporium.

For my tag I used Stampin Up Naturals paper, which has kind of a rough finish.  I gave it a distressing with Vintage Photo and then used Stampin Up French Script for my background!  Used Tim's pine stamp and inked the pine needles with Forrest Moss and the pine cone with frayed burlap and then clear embossed.  The edged the tag with Versamark and then embossed with gold.  The fragments were edged with a Krylon gold pen.  The letters were cut with a Sizzix die.  I decided to not add further embellishments, because I think I will mail this one off! 

Well tomorrow I am not tagging!  I need to maybe "START" a little decorating for Christmas - you think?  Thanks a ton for stopping by and will catch you on Monday!  Have a wonderful Sunday!
