Well I recieved an exciting phone call from my {fantastic} LSS, The Paper Pickle, telling me that my Tim Holtz 'Letter From Santa' Stamps were in...woo hoo! So, I have been busy creating Christmas Tags using the stunning stamps.
'Christmastime is Here' 
This tag consists of three tags in one, a large and two small tags tucked behind St.Nick's hat.  Santa has been stamped using Tim Holtz distress inks {aged mahogany}.
The small, paper flower is Prima, the tips have been inked {aged mahogany, walnut stain}, I added some random typewriter parts and a strip of silk from the fabric store.
'Right Down Santa Claus Lane'
Out of the two tags this is my far.  Again, there are two small tags tucked in behind Santa's hat.  I have added some nuts&bolts from my beloved typewriter for some detail.
{Tags - close up}
Stamped with Tim Holtz-Ultimate Grunge Stamps {walnut stain}
I have coated the 'Right Down Santa Claus Lane' with Ranger's Distress Crackle Paint {clear Rock Candy}.  I have tried a few different crackle paints and have found that this one is best at giving me the look I am trying to achieve.
Another strip of silk and some more typewriter gears to finish it off.
Thanks for taking the time!
Great days,
