The Stamp man - All things Tim - Christmas tags and tin

This is my first project for the Stamp Man DT and of course I chose the best theme ever - all things Tim and Christmas.

This is a small tin and small tags, really miniature when compared to the tag size TH uses. I think they work ................................ but have a look for yourself.

Tags all coloured using the wrinkle free technique and edged with DIs. Different coloured threads have been added to them.

Snowflake tag - stamped with TH snowflake and  covered in perfect pearls. Maya road chipboard snowflake - covered in art glitter glue, before dried pressed onto paper and pulled off to give textured look. Then painted in acrylic paint mixed with DI. When dry covered with turquoise stickles.

Tree and star tag - water droplets added the splodged look. Wooden tree edged with pine needles DI and little gold stars added.

Tree charm and bow tag - torn music paper glued on and stamped over with TH tree branch. Metal tree charm with green alcohol ink over it linked to a pin.

Angel tag - tag stamped with TH text. Wooden angel painted with gold ink and antique linen distress stickles added.

25th December tag - covered with snowflake patterned vellum paper and creased to look old. Edged with vintage photo DI and stamped with snowflake and perfect pearls added to them. The 2 and 5 are peeloff numbers covered in alcohol ink. A dome sticker was put over the calendar from TH Lost and Found stack.

Silver stars tag - distressed background using stream and silver alcohol inks (just love the veined look of the silver - what a great experiment). Stamped with Merry Christmas and silver stars  tied on with wire.

The little tin has been covered in alcohol inks with distressed papers added to the bottom and lid inside. I stamped the lid with the tree branch using brown stazon. The top has been decorated with some collage pieces, stickles and another silver star.

I am really pleased with the effects and just don't want to give them away now.
