Ho, Ho, Ho!

 Hello Friends

A quick post just to share a large tag I made a bit back, using the new Santa Colorize die set by Tim Holtz, he is just such a jolly Santa!

I used the smallest size Etcetera tag (it is still huge) to create a scene for Santa.  I don't have a step by step - sorry, it is just one of those projects I just got lost in the making of it.

I used Christmas worn wallpaper to cover the tag before adding some Icicle Crackle Paste in the corners.  I rubbed Festive berries Distress Crayon into the crackles to highlight them.  The tree is a half tree from Tim's Woodland Trees set from a couple of years back.  I dyed the tree with various Distress Spray Stains before adding Idea-ology Christmas Tiny Lights, some alcohol ink coloured pears and then some Grit Paste to add the snow.

Santa is one of Tim's latest Colorize dies, I added a little bit of sparkle to him here and there using Distress Clear Rock Candy Glitter with the Glitter Duster.
I created the shelf using Etcetera Trims, attaching Tim's Idea-ology Icicles to the front and then coating the whole shelf in Distress Grit Paste. I added some Icicle Distress Crackle Paste to the icicles themselves which gives them a bit of a sheen. I coated the shelf and the Icicles with Glitter.  The snowballs are Idea-ology Clear Baubles coated in Glossy Accents and then dipped into Distress Clear Rock Candy Glitter.

The '25' is from an older Idea-logy set and I coloured them with Alcohol ink.  The tin lid is from the latest Idea-ology range.
To finish off I dyed some of Tim's older Idea-ology seam binding with Festive Berries Distress Spray Stain and added it to the top of my tag.

It lights up (of course!) with Idea-ology Christmas Tiny Lights.

I would like to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme this week is 'Santa'.

Thanks so much for your visit, I always appreciate them.

Have a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing.

Crafty hugs, Anne xx
