Tag a la' Tim - BLING snowman!

 Hi! Feeling better!
So have you been checking out Tim Holtz's twelve days of tags? I have! I have followed him and especially his 12 days of tags since he started it 4 years ago! And I have never actually completed a tag.........until now!
I finally sucked it up and bought some alcohol inks and distress inks (for the second time but that's another story)
and attempted to create something Tim worthy!
This tag was inspired by Tim's Day 4 Tag seen here.
I said inspired by not copied!
It was also inspired by this tag HERE from last year.
I told you I have followed his tags for 4 years but never completed one so I have a lot of ideas and techniques and tags swirling together!

I started out stamping the snowman and flakes in Broken China and then embossing them with clear EP. I then rubbed silver paint dauber over the top. I used a wet paper towel to wipe the paint off the embossed areas creating a kind of resist. I stamped Seasons Greetings and added a swirl bling, and bling to the bottom. I inked up some adornments with broken china and tied some stretchy silver cord around it with some baubles hanging from it! I am super pleased with how it turned out and it was really pretty simple!
In my search for all things Tim I found 7 Kids College Fund and this tag fits this week's challenge for Winter Wonderland! 
It also works for another great site for Tim products' challenge this week Simon Says Stamp!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
