This is my second attempt at a 12 Tags of 2016 December tag. Just as the first tag I was inspired by the patterned teapot. The teapot was cut out free hand and stenciled with Festive Berries stain through the Tim Holtz Poinsettia stencil.
The background is the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil – Christmas Festive with Mowed Lawn spray stain on a linen background.
The embellishments include a tattered poinsettia with a bell for the stamens, Be Joyful drop shadow embossed in gold, Holiday greens cut from green cardstock stained with mowed lawn and forest moss, Idea-ology Silverware, Happy typed token, and a tiny tea time stamp from Papertrey ink.
I’ve enjoyed this month’s tag largely because I was able to play around with the techniques and actually get the concept. I also like how the tags look. Oh, I cut out the tag the same size as the regular layering stencil so the elements on the teapots were not way out of proportion.
That’s it for this month in terms of tags. I wonder what new things will be coming in January. It’s always interesting to find out.
