Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas Tag 4

Up until today, I could hand cut or copy the content of the previous 3 tags...Ok, so this is where I begin to digress COMPLETELY from the original in content as we don't have snow in Cape Town so I don't buy anything to do with snow...I have used all his techniques and products, so there is some similarity to the tag created by Tim, but it ends there.  You can go to his blog HERE and follow his instructions on how to make a tag that will look like his at the end of this post!

I used puff paint on his beard, hat and shorts and just pencil crayons to colour in the rest.

Instead of glossy accents I wanted to see what the crackle paint would do in the numbers, so I filled them when I covered the tag.  I think it worked quite nicely.

This is Tim's masterpiece!


  1. Ooh Belinda i love your Santa, is it a stamp? Now i'm on your blog i see it better than on my phone. Very nice waves also.
    Tomorrow i'm not so fast because i have to work and it is parcel evening (Sinterklaas).

  2. That such a fun tag! Love your Santa. You are braver than me - I stuck fairly close to the way Tim did it. Love your wonderful tag.
