12 Tags of Christmas - Week 5

I hope you are coming here from the fun 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge at the Funkie Junkie Blog.   Linda is having a blast making weekly tags for our inspiration.  This week is no exception.  I must admit, I have several things in my 'collection' that have been woefully neglected, ignored, and NEVER used.  Evergreen Bough Distress Ink is one of those items.  As soon as I saw it on this weeks tag, I knew that was my inspiration for my entry.

I inked up my cardstock with Evergreen Bough Distress ink.  Then used the wonderful spritz and flick technique that Tim Holtz has taught us.  I also sprayed some Picket Fence Spray Stain over the top to give it a 'snowy' appearance.  The tree is stamped and die cut using the Tim Holtz Blueprint Tree.  I love that you can add dimension by stamping and having the die cut to match.  Brilliant idea Tim!  The bow is a darling little gift from Linda at the Funkie Junkie Boutique.  She is sponsoring this challenge, and also has the most amazing online shop you will ever find!  Plus...with each order, she includes these wonderful little packages of goodies, always tied with a seasonal colored ribbon.  How fun is that?  


  1. Your background here is wonderful! Really highlights this stamp!

  2. Great idea to layer that stamp - and wonderful background to showcase it! xx Lynn
