On a rainy wednesday what better way to spend  the morning than playing in the room of craft and getting inky.......I had a great time making this tag.

I was inspired by Studio L3 Challenge 19 - Kraft Resist  which is following Tim Holtz book CC2 pop over to Linda's and take a look at Tim's Video there.
Sunday Stampers challenge - Green.  Yep I think I can safely say my tag is green lol
 I haven't played at either challenges in a long time so it has been great to be able to join in again.

Tag photo was taken this way as it was the only angle that showed up the resisit on the paper, light isn't great as weather so dull

you can just make out the words down the side which say Christmas Carol. I cut the festive greenery with a selection of papers from the colorcore Distress Collection and sanded, lace from my stash.

A fun technique to do and I have now officially made my first item for Christmas 2012......yikes!!!!

Products used Tim Holtz Kraft Resist card;Distress Inks vintage photo, peeled paint, crushed olive, Dies, Festive Greenery, Candlelight Fright, Distress Stickles rock candy, frayed burlap, white and orange acrylic paint
