12 Tags of 2013 ... January!

Good Morning!
I am back today with my version of this month's tag for 12 Tags of 2013! This was great fun last year and I am so glad that Tim Holtz decided to carry on with it again this year! Incase you are un-familiar with this all you have to do is create your own version of a tag that Tim has created each month.
So without further ado here is this month's tag ...


I thought I would share a photo of how the tag looks after decorating the background. I chose to use the Cuttlebug 'Snow Dots' embossing folder for the background then the same inks Tim used along with the 'Spritz Technique' which is basically where you spritz some water from a bottle onto the tag. Make sure you do this gently however as you want water droplets instead of a mist to land.


As mentioned earlier you can find a step - by- step for the tag over on Tim's blog.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

I had to come over and check out your Tim tag from the thumbnail on his blog. I was going to use the same word stamp but couldn't quite make it look right in a composition. I'm so glad you used this stamp and you made the tag look awesome because of it.
