12 Tags of Christmas - Tag #10

Sheesh, we're two hours from Tim's next tag, and I barely finished today's!

If you're following along with the challenge, you've obviously seen Tim's festive facet tag. I love the look of facets and I love his musical stamp, but I am seriously lacking those (and many other) Tim products, so I had to improvise with what I have on hand.

I didn't get to create this tag until tonight, so please forgive me for the dark, blurry photos! Here is my tag:


I embossed my background with the Bricked Texture Fade folder. I figured an embossed background is always better than no background!! You can see a little bit of the bricks here: 


Instead of facets, I used my Movers & Shapers hearts with some wings made from Autumn Gatherings. The piece behind my hearts is a Movers & Shapers label that I cut out using corrugated cardboard.


I don't have Tim's alphas, so instead I used some Salvage stickers of his for the sentiment. Here is a really dark photo ... 


Thanks for looking!! Now, off to check out some of your creations ... :)

Supplies:

Movers & Shapers Labels
Movers & Shapers Hearts
Forest Moss Distress Stain
Black Soot, Gathered Twig, & Barn Door Distress Ink
Ranger gold embossing powder
Bricked Texture Fade embossing folder
Salvage Stickers
Urban Grunge stamp

Love how you made the heart wings from the leaf shapes. And I also like the textures of the embossing and cardbaord plaque. I don't have a lot of Tims stuff either, but it's more fun and challenging to improvise with what I already have. I like the way you improvise ;)

I love this tag, Maria! I love how so many of us are using what we have and totally making the tags our own.
