All About Winter.....

Today's Tag has been inspired by The TAGPlorations Challenge....
Here is my Tag....
This is the inspiration Photo....
The first thing I saw was two tags....
Then the beautiful colours and the contemporary trees on the tag on the left....
Next came the snow and the snowman on the tag on the right.....

The background has been blended with distress inks and a stencil for the snow.
The trees have also been stencilled with embossing paste.
I have used clear crackle and snow paste.

The die cut sentiment comes as 'Warm Winter Wishes' from Stamploraitons,
 which I have snipped and used individually.
The snowman comes in a larger size, 
also from Stamplorations but I have used the tiny one.

I also wanted to include the pretty light blue/jade on the tag on the left
so sprayed the snow with Lindy sprays to achieve this.

Challenges I would love to enter...

Stamplorations Mixed Media Challenge - Anything but a card and you must use a stencil....
I have used the Christmas Tree 1 stencil by Sanna Lippert and also the dots all over,
both by Stamplorations

You are certainly rocking the 'technique' boat these days! Love these artsy trees, and that darling fun snowie. The bold background color lets the elements really shine out, and the crackled frame around the tag's edge is so textural. One of the best tags I've seen. Good Job! TFS & Hugs

A fabulous tag! Love the snowman and all the texture on the main tag, and the little sentiment tag is just a perfect way to add the sentiment - I really like the way the first and last letters slightly come off the edges.
