My very first Tim Holtz...ish Tag!

Don't have a lot..well ANY...Timy charms or anybody else's for that matter! No Grundge or washers, so used chipboad and eyelets with brads.
Je n'ai pas de "charms" de Tim, ou  d'autre trucs qui pendent! Pas de grungeboard non plus, j'ai utilisé ce que j'ai trouvé, de carton, des oiellets, des attaches parisiens etc.


Close up of second attempt...cut the holly leaves by hand and the berries are cut with my cropodile....can't find my fiskars hand punch!!
Deuxième tentative...et le houx, est découpé à la main et les baies avec mon cropodile....ne trouve pas ma perforatrice Fiskars!

Choices, choices..........added snow white acrylic paint to the embossed plastic then rubbed it off...kinda like the idea....think I'll go for it!
Ahhh… les choix à faire.....j'ai peint le plastique embossé avec de la peinture acrylique blanc puis je l’ai essuyé laissant de la peinture dans les flocons. J'aime bien ...je crois que je vais l'utilisé pour les deux que je suis en train de faire.

  2. Congratulations on your first Tim Holtz tag! I love it! Questions about the snowflakes. What is that? A large stamp? Nice job!
