Tag a la' Tim Santa

This *might* be my favorite one! EEEEK! It is inspired - and I actually followed pretty closely to THIS tag - again from his first year of the tags 2007. I remember loving this TAG soooooooooooo much that I had to have the stamp set - um it's 2010 and this is the first time two of the stamps have been inked!
I still love it though! And now it will be one of my go to Christmas sets!
I stamped the santa in Pallet Noir then the Tree in Simply Chartreuse and Believe in Pure Poppy - my tags are somewhat smaller than tims but I think it works. I used the foam dauber and added the green and red inking all over the tag. I found some grunge pieces that I painted gold along with the numbers. I added brads to the pieces. And used Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding for the tie - I love that stuff! This one came together really quickly! Thanks for looking!
Stamps: Tim Holtz
Ink: Pallet Noir, Simply Chartreuse, Old Olive, Pure Poppy all PTI, Walnut Stain Distress ink
Other: Gold Brads, Gold Paint, Grungeboard shapes, Grunge numbers, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding. Foam Applicator, Tim Holtz Distress Tool
