12 Tags of Christmas.........tag #9

When I saw Tim Holtz's tag this morning and saw that he'd used the candelabra die which I hadn't got, I started trying other die shapes but wasn't happy with how they looked on the background. When I was going through my dies though, the dress form fromTH The Sewing Room caught my eye and realised I could make the stand into a candle stick, so using grunge paper I cut one out, then drew and cut a candle out of grunge paper, painting the candle stick in gold metalic paint and the candle in white, the flame was coloured with Wild Honey ink.


I stamped SU French Filligree with TH Iced Spruce from the new winter colours and embossed with clear embossing powder, then using a blending tool added Festive Berries ink all over the tag and added more clear embossing powder, then inked Walnut Stain around the edge. I made up the candlestick and added the foliage, lastly adding PEACE.
