I was doing pretty good and then it happened. I was putting the holly sprig together with hot glue. The hot glue got one my fingers and without thinking I touched my other hand and had hot glue on both hands and fingers. Ouch! It's my first accident I've had with hot glue. I was pulling off the hot glue and skin came with it. It was in ice water and now have cooling gel on my fingers and hands to finish this tag.
Now on with this tag.
I made a stamp using Tim's tutorial: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2011/12/12-tags-of-christmastag-3.html#comments
So happy I had the Cut n' Dry stamp pad felt on hand. I recall seeing Tim do this technique when he was on Carol Duvall Show many years ago.
I made due with the Distress reinkers I had on hand and stamped on Kraft cardstock.
I followed the instructions Tim used but finished the sprig using Silhouette digital cut images. I used alcohol inks on bling. (red berries)
The star at the top is from Tim's idea-ology.
