Day 5

We're up to Day 5 if you're following Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas.  I went out on a limb and chose a non-Christmas theme.  I did learn that the more alcohol ink on the felt and the less pouncing you do on the acrylic tag will = less marbling so your solid image is much easier to see when wiped off.

Tim stuff used:  Tag & Bookplate die, mini branch & acorn dies; Seasonal Reflections stamp, Calendar 2 stamp; Kraft Core 20, 21, 24; charm clip

Ranger stuff:  Peach Bellini, Sunset Orange, Terra Cotta alcohol inks; Jet Black archival ink; Tea Dye, Gathered Twigs distress inks; Glossy Accents

Misc. stuff used:  acrylic packaging, pumpkin button

My Wendy Vecchi version my alcohol inks were much more solid so the image really stands out.  Lesson learned!  Unfortunately the Glossy Accents shows up more around the edge of the tag since I used lighter colors.  Sigh.

Studio 490 stuff:  Art-Fully Said (flower), Make Mine Mini Art (butterfly, text) All About Art (polka dot background) stamp sets

Tim stuff:  Tag & Bookplate die

Ranger stuff:  Jet Black, Library Green archival inks; Meadow, Clover, Bottle alcohol inks; Glossy Accents; Black Enamel Accents (body of butterfly); Antique Linen and whatever yellow and orange distress inks were already on my blending foams

Misc. stuff:  acrylic packaging, Martha Stewart silk ribbons, grosgrain ribbon


  1. Great tags - I still haven't had time to try any Wendy style.... soon, I hope! Love both of these, but the colour of your Wendy tag is fabulous!

  2. I've been scrolling thru your recent work, and it's stellar as always, Susan! Love the Wendy versions, really creative! I'm hoping to get beyond day 1 soon...lol...

  3. Beautiful! Love that white wendy flower peeking through. Thanks again for the AI tip.
