With the unusually mild weather we had this past week, I again had to resort to creating my own winter scene and made this tag. I first inked the tag with a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Inks in antique linen and tea dye. The tree stamp was part of a Tim Holtz set I got on sale at Emma's Paperie. I used forest moss Distress Ink for the tree and just stamped it several times on the tag to create the various shades of the trees. I applied gesso around the edges of the tag and put dots of it all over the tag which I quickly coated with glitter from Martha Stewart. The snowflakes are from two Martha Stewart punches. I just inked them with tea dye and applied touches of gesso and glitter. I then put Jolee snowflake stickers to the center. The ribbon is also from Tim Holtz. I took a piece of off white cardstock, covered it in forest moss ink and punched out the pine branches. A little gesso was applied to them as well as some Stickles. SEI stamps were used on the tiny tag and accented with Liquid Pearls in Platinum.
I am still having trouble with blogger. Anyone else out there experiencing this? I had to switch to HTML to upload the photos. I thought the problem was fixed when I switched to Google Chrome but apparently not. Any other suggestions?
Hope to be back soon. Thanks for stopping by and any help you can give me.
