Tim Holtz 12 days of Christmas tags - day one

Hi all,bet you thought i had but been too busy to blog.Have joined the tag challenge hosted by sue aka playingwithpaperover at Docrafts to recreate the Tim Holtz 12 days of Christmas tags and this is my attempt at day one. You can find the original challenge over at Tim's blog. I have tweaked mine slightly to allow for materials etc and i got really messy but had great fun. My list of ingrediants for this tag are
Tim Holtz tag die and rickety house die and a sizzex fence die
brushed courduroy,walnut stain,old paper,barn door, faded jeans and tumbled glass distress inks
grunge paper,snow cap dabber, glamour dust (which is my new addiction), mini mister and perfect pearls,snowflake stamp,star brad,wreath topper,cottonwool bud,ticket which you can get here at the lovely lisa's blog.
First i diecut my house and then used brushed courduroy and walnut stain on house,added snowcap dabber and glamour dust,used my secret ingrediant for the glass(quality street wrappers) and added a wreath topper,diecut tag and then stamped blue ink pads onto my mats and added some perfect pearls mixed in water and dried,repeated this 3 times and then stamped snowflakes using faded jeans distress ink.added my star brad and glued house to tag and added smoke and ticket,diecut fence and added snow by using the snowcap dabber and glamour dust and then glued into place.
Sorry that was such a long post and i hope you have stayed to the end,see you tomorrow
