Seek His Light- Tim Holtz Tag #1 and a couple of cards

I wanted to try to make the Tag(s) Tim Holtz is making- 12 Days of Christmas- I started on Day one (12/1)....and have just finished Day one.....yikes- I am a little behind!  I decided to try the technique on more than one kind of paper- 1)Manilla Tag (that is what Tim uses), 2) Regular white tag, 3)Top Note Die in Whisper White (SU).   I do not know why, but my Manilla Tag looks green not blue- so I threw it out (looks like tornado weather- could not see making anything else with it).  Tag #2 was made on a plain White Tag that I rec'd from a Secret Sister swap on SCS.  This is the first tag on my blog today.  I love the way the Rock Candy Distress Crackle looks IRL- it is a great background and shimmery too. I do not have the stamps Tim was using on his blog so I substituted and used stamps from Firecracker Designs by Pamela.  The Shepherd Snowman and sheep are from a new set released this year- I was thrilled- I was wanting to make Christian themed cards- at least for relatives- and I have alot of relatives!  The set is called Shepherd Snow Family- you can see it here. The snowflakes are from FCD sets Love Never Melts and Let's Celebrate.  The swirl in the BG is from Innovative Stamp Creations set Art4framesII.

This tag qualifies me to enter the following challenges:
IncyWincy Designs- Snowflakes
Stamp Something-glitzy somethings
Pink Elephant- Your Favorite Christmas Color- BLUE!
Pile it on- Tinsel Town-Glitter
Copic Creations- Snow/Snowpeople
Creative Card Crew- Christmas


I used Copic markers to color in the Snow Shepherd and family on the tag and cards.  I used the following colors:
B21, B23, B24, B26, Bvoo, E0000, E000, E00, E31, E33, YR07, Y13, C2, C3, R20, R22, R24, R27

I did not have the Rock Candy Stickles, so used Crystal Ice Stickles and for the star I used yellow stickles also by Ranger on the star and the lantern. I mounted my Top Die Tags onto CS to make a card out of them- used colors from the Bg for the Purple- that is Eggplant Envy (retired SU).
 

 For this card, I decided to try Brilliant Blue- too much of the same- so I took a piece of Yo Yo Yellow and did a Technique called Cuttlebug Highlight- that really made the yellow 'pop' on the card. 

 
Just in case you have not seen the link to Tim Holtz 12 days of Christmas Tags, here it is on his blog.  Dang, I want a job like his!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Shelly, love the tag. The snowman is really cute. And, yes I did get the blog candy and I love the image. You asked about red copics on my blog and I cant tell either. They are not in the photo so I will have to figure that one out. Hm.
You look like you have been very busy with the tags love them all.
