Snowflake Tag

Christmas again!

A large tag this time.  Its a heavy board tag - I picked up a set of three ages ago at a show for pence!  I started off by covering the whole thing with Gesso and let it dry then painted with Distress paint and again let it dry.  I simply applied Cosmic Shimmer White Texture Paste through a Tim Holtz stencil then sprinkled with Cosmic Shimmer glitter.  When dry I delved in a box of bits I had made for previous Christmas Cards over the years and found the die cut bauble and part of a snowflake both from glitter card which coordinated perfectly!  I added three punched snowflakes out of the same box to the bauble.  The Penny Black sentiment is stamped in Black Versafine and embossed in clear powder on a scrap of card.  I trimmed it to the shape I wanted then added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The glitter wool is a snippet from a ball I bought from a charity shop years ago.  I added some blue stones to the small snowflakes and a large pearl to the part snowflake.  The whole thing sparkles wonderfully but it doesn't show so much in the photo.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Darnell's  - NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) - I have not used the stencil before.

The Craft Barn - Stencils/Masks

Pixies Snippets Playground - Use Snippets  - The card for the sentiment, the wool and the part snowflake are all snippets.

Stamploration Mixed Media Challenge - Anything but a card - must have used a stencil.

All these are awesome blogs - please hop over and have a look!  Join in with the challenges too!

Thank you so much for visiting me - I am so grateful that you did!  Take care.  Christine xxx

Such a pretty tag and so neat. I would never have managed to apply the texture paste without it seeping through the stencil. Fab work! Jx

This is so beautiful, Chris! It is like a cozy and warm and sparkly Christmas sweater!! Thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5 ~ so long ago! I'm sorry that my nursing duties have made me so late to come by and thank you. Enjoy your day! I'm assuming all is the same for you or I would have heard. I imagine you are loving having the wee one for even more cuddles! Hugs, Darnell
