I hear Christmas!

Over on Hels's blog her Sunday theme was music (in general, not a specific song title as she's done in the past).  I made this tag 8"x4" and put Tim's mask down the center.  Lots of distress ink over and around it.  His sheet music and title were stamped in black archival ink, the reindeer in Sepia, the trees have several distress inks on them, and 'Merry Christmas' was gold embossed.

The calendar page (Tim's) was stamped on grungepaper in Library Green archival ink, green and brown distress inks around the edges, and the gold paint dabber was touched to the edges.  The upper left hand corner was curled and  a red jewel placed on the 25th.

I distressed a red heart brad with Tim's sander and pulled the pin on a Maya Road star that I touched up with the gold paint dabber to take away some of the shine. 

Music ribbon and a gold binder clip complete the tag.


  1. I love this tag - I used that mask too, but didn't go Christmassy! Love it.
