Tim Holtz Tag Challenge - October

As I don't "do" Halloween I gave my October tag a Christmas theme. A far amount of  improvising was called for as I have very few of the ingredients that Tim used. I don't have any printed tissue so I made my own using a script stamp. Nor do I have any large letter dies so I stamped Merry Christmas, put some double sided adhesive sheet over the top before cutting out and applying crystal glitter which I had coloured a lovely pale blue with "Aqua" alcohol ink. Much less messy than using Glossy Accents! The snowflake is attached to the sentiment by a thin thread so it hangs freely.

Tim's October tag is here and this is my offering -

This is very lovely and I was fascinated by all the ingredients you used and the way you improvised the things you didn't have. How did you colour the glitter using alcohol inks?

Wow - there is an amazing amount fo work gone into this tag - and it shows - I love the fact that you have put your own originality into it rather than just copying Tims' tag
