I made this tag for the challenge over at Tag Tuesday which was 'Snow Sports & Games. I have had this retro stamp in my stash for ages and never found a use for it until now. The tag is from the second largest die shape in the Xcut Nesties 'Square Parenthesis' and die cut using 300gsm watercolour paper. I am finding these sets of nesties (bought with Christmas money ) are turning out to be really useful and quite versatile.
I used 2 shades of pastel chalks to create the sky and distress ink for the trees. The girl was stamped using Stazon ink and coloured in with watercolour pencils. The look of snow was achieved by covering the white areas with glossy accents and then sprinkling over with matt white glitter.
I realised when I had finished making the tag that I had inadvertantly made a mini scenescape so I am posting this onto the Craft a Scene #1: Anything goes. 2nd posting.
Everything to make this tag came from my stash so I'm keeping to my pledge.
In case any of you are frantically parting the branches on the fir trees searching for the themed heart button, there isn't one so stop looking!! (The buttons will only be put on craft items going out as gifts.
