Tag a la' Tim Wreath for your Door

 Another Tag a la' Tim Holtz for you today! I am obsessed I tell ya! Now that I actually understand how to use alcohol inks and I have the right tools I am ink love ! Today's tag was inspired by THIS tag from his very first year. I don't have those stamps but wanted to recreate it best I could.
I did create the background much the same. I painted the tag with white crackle paint, let dry then inked it with antique linen ink. I distressed the edges and inked them with walnut stain.
I love how it looks like an old door!
For the wreath I punched out a bunch of MS pine branches and just formed a wreath. I added some red stickles to it and voila! Down at the bottom I used glitter stickers which I colored with alcohol inks red to spell out JOY and I stamped Christmas above it.
I used a large eyelet from stampin up to look like a door handle and I found these adorable little bitty keys from 7 Gypsies at Archivers. I hung one from some bakers twine and glued it behind the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Bow I made for the wreath.
 And here is the wreath close up! Very pleased how this one turned out!

Stamps: Waltzing Mouse
Ink: Dark Chocolate by PTI, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
CS: Ripe Avacado
Other: Red Stickles, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Brass Eyelet, Brass Key, Bakers Twine, White Crackle Paint, Scrap Satin Brown Ribbon
Tools: MS Pine Branch Punch, Tim Holtz Distress Tool
