12 Tags of Christmas - Day Two

Happy Day. I hope that the Christmas spirit is finding you in all things... creating especially! I have been out of my studio too much this year.... stress and circumstances have "stolen" my creativity. Playing with these tags have helped in so many ways.. Creativity heals. It is truly therapeutic. 

With all that being said, here is Day Two... I really had fun with this tag!

The Details: 

 I pulled out the Melting Pot & UTEE for this tag. 

First, I inked my tag up with Distress Ink. Then I poured the melted UTEE onto it and stamped into it while the UTEE  was still melted. THE IMPORTANT THING is to protect your stamp. I inked my stamp up with Versamark before stamping into the UTEE. Once the UTEE cooled, I inked it up with Staz-On ink and then Perfect Medium so I could brush Perfect Pearls over it. 

The trees are cut using a Sizzex Alterations die by Tim Holtz. One is cut from metal paper and the other from Grungeboard. I inked the Grungeboard up with Distress Ink and then brushed it with Perfect Pearls. I used Snowflake Embossing Powder by Ranger to create "snow" on my tree. 
Happy Creating!
