Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2013 - October

I'm not a big glitter fan, but some of the examples I've seen around YouTube and blogs made me go and grab Clear Rock Candy, Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress Glitters. Not so very surprisingly October's theme was glitter in the 12 tags of 2013 October -challenge. 

Since we don't do Halloween here in Scandinavia (or didn't, but the merchandise overload sure is getting heavier every year in the stores and I've seen kids trick-or-treating...), I made a winter/Christmas -themed tag. It's heavily themed like the one I did for a Finnish challenge, which I really liked.

I must admit, I am falling more and more in love with Peacock Feathers as a color. I only have it as a stain for now, which I used here for the background with Brushed Pewter and Picket Fence -paints. I shaded the edges with Faded Jeans and Pumice Stone and added some stamping in Picket Fence paint. The swirls are heat embossed with Versamark and detailed white embossing powder.

The snowflakes are cut from a food cartong and painted white with Picket Fence, then covered with Glossy Accents and Clear Rock Candy glitter. They are then shaded with Faded Jeans. The xmas-ball is a diecut with the Tiny Tabs and tags -Bigz die, stamped with Picket Fence and then colored with Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Pumice Stone. Glitter is Pumice Stone. Added some half pearls and silver-colored yarn to finish the tag.
