♥ Ice Skate Tag ~ Tim Holtz Style! ♥

Hi there! Today starts a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


        It's Anything Goes! Any type of paper craft will do!!



This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Tim Holtz/Ranger! (My favorite!) I decided to make a tag this week since it was TH week!! I used the super fun Ice Skate Sketch Stamp as well as the Ice Skates Stamp from the Old Fashioned Christmas set.


I first colored the white tag with various Distress Inks. I then used the Falling Snow Stencil by Simon Says Stamp after the inks were dry. I just simply rubbed a white ink pad over the stencil to faintly give a little snow to the tag. I then stamped the Ice Skates stamp in Black Soot ink. I then added the Ice Skate Sketch to the tag using a brad. I added some White Glitter to the skate and also some Kate Snowflakes and White Opal Liquid Pearls.


I finished off the tag with some hand dyed seam binding and a gem.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!





To everyone here in the U.S. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow! Don't eat too much turkey!!

Have a wonderful week!

hugs...
