12 Tags of Christmas - {day 1}

Finally finished my tag for {day 1} of the 12 tags of Christmas. I didn't have all the same stuff that was used by Tim so did my own thing:

I used distress inks- old paper, shabby shutters, peeled paint and dusty concord for the background. The flourish stamps were Fancy Pants and as I didn't have any Rock Candy Distress paint I used Crackle accents but I don't think I put it on thickly enough as it didn't crackle. The chipboard is Basic grey Periphery that was painted with Anita's antique white acrylic paint, edged with Dusty Concord distress ink and covered with Stickles. The angel with the Christmas tree is from a Dover book of angel vignettes that was a bargain buy a few weeks ago. I used Distress Stickles - Milled Lavender at the top and then added some Creative Imaginations twill ribbon.

Materials used: Papermill card, Distress inks - old paper, shabby shutters, peeled paint and dusty concord, Ranger Crackle accents, Fancy Pants stamps - Blissful Season and Fresh Mod, Ranger black ink, Basic Grey chipboard, Anita's acrylic paint - antique white, Stickles- stardust, Distress Stickles - milled lavender, angel vignette from Dover book, Creative Imaginations twill ribbon, Making Memories brad. Organza ribbon from stash.
