12 Tags of Christmas - Tag #12 - Angel

We hope you all enjoyed Sherry's 12 Tags of Christmas.  I personally think she gives Time Holtz a run for his money.  Remember, all of her tags will be on display at The Scrapbook Store, so you still have time to complete the tags.  Also, product is also available for purchase!  So last, but certainly not least - Here is my new personal favorite...

Tag #12
Angel Tag
Product used to create this tag:

Angel Stamp (Stampers Anonymous for Tim Holtz)
My Christmas Message stamp is: Heaven Rejoice by Wordsworth C029-Q)
Distress Markers: Tumbled Glass, Mustard Seed, Dusty Concord, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw and Antique Linen.
Distress Ink: Antique Linen and Embossing ink pad (Tim Holtz)
Paper tape: Music note set (Tim Holtz)
Spark Tinsel: White (American Crafts)
Wood Veneer Stars (Studio Calico)
Gold Embossing Powder




I stamped a large angel stamp (I used Tim Holtz’s Angel Stamp by Stampers Anonymous ) using brown
Memento ink on smooth watercolor paper.
With distress markers and a waterflo brush, I swiped the color marker directly on a craft mat and picked up
the color with my brush painting the entire angel. See example or check out The Scrapbook Store blog.
Let dry and cut the angel out.
Take two white feathers and adhere them to the Angel’s wings using Glossy Accents. (Optional: cut a second feather shorter and adhere directly over the first feather to give a fuller appearance.)

Ink a Christmas message stamp with Tim Holt’s Distress Embossing ink pad (or use any embossing pad.)
Choose a dark gold embossing powder and heat emboss using a heat gun.

With a blending tool distress the surface and edges of the embossed tag with Antique Linen Distress ink

Using Scattered Straw Distress marker ink a solid small star and stamp all around the outer edge of the tag
partially off the tag on the sides.
Squeeze a small amount of Rock Candy Distress Stickles onto a craft mat and with your finger dab the stickles over each star. Let dry.

Add a strip of music note paper tape to the bottom of your stamped message.
Glue N Seal the bottom edge and side up to the tape and sprinkle with white Spark Tinsel (American Crafts) Let dry.

Adhere Angel to top of tag, add a ribbon at the top and three veneer stars, two under the Angel and one
in the hand that is off the tag with Glossy Accents.
