He Sees You

Have you been keeping up with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas??  O.M.G. that is just about the most talented human on the planet.  Every single day when I think there is no way he could top the previous day's tag, BAM!  Sheer genius!!!

So, day 1 I was TOTALLY inspired and rushed right over to my craft table to play along.  And while it doesn't really resemble Tim's tag it is inspired by it in its rudimentary form:

The two items that most inspired me on Tim's tag were the crackle paint and the wired ribbon.  I didn't use any wired ribbon on this (oh, but I'll use that trick sometime!) but I sure played with my crackle medium.  I realized I really need to get me some of that Tim Holtz crackle.  His cracks so BIG.  While you can see the crackles pretty well on the chipboard swirl:

it doesn't show up as well on the tag itself, which is covered, because I think I painted it on and doing it that way with my crackle medium thins is out too much. 

Santa's covered with some glittery Stickles, as only Santa should be.  :o)

So I made this tag with a couple of the papers you will get in the December Torendi kit "Modern Red"!!!! 

This kit includes:

3 pieces of American Crafts Cardstock
2 12x12 sheets of Jillibean Soup Toasted Cumin Paper
2 12x12 sheet Jillibean Soup Alphabet Pasta Paper
1 12x12 piece of Shinzi Katoh Red Hood Fabric (blue)
1 I Love NY stamp from the Shinzi Katoh NY Stamp Set
1 Red Hood Postcard (one of two possible designs)
6 Jillibean Soup Square Kraft Journaling tags
1 Random Decole Little Red Clip (varies with kit)
Multiple Earth Toned Buttons

I soooooo have plans for that Red Hood Fabric & clip (I got the wolf one) and the I Love NY stamp.  My poor craft table is just crying out for my attention.  Soon, dear table, soon. 

Stinkin cute, no?
