Papertrey Ink "New Home" Gift Tag (featuring the Funky Fossil Sunray Stencil)

Our friends move into a new house shortly, so I made a gift tag to go on their present. 

To make this tag, I Used a stamp set by Papertrey Ink called "Winter Hills".  I stamped the house, then stamped it again on a post-it note and cut the shape out to create a mask.  I then stamped the trees, which were from the same set.

Leaving the mask in place, I covered the tag in a light coat of "Tumbled Glass" Distress Oxide Ink.  In. the sky, I then covered it with "Faded Jeans" Distress Oxide ink.  I lay the Funky Fossil Designs "Sunray Stencil" over the top and applied "Wilted Violet" Distress Oxide Ink.  I then splattered water droplets from a fan shaped paint brush to create speckles like snow/stars.  Then lifted the stencil.

On the land area in the foreground.  I used "Weathered Wood" Distress Oxide with a chisel shaped paint brush to create the path from the door to the edge of the tag.  I then brushed the remaining ink on the brush in the garden area.

I used a white Gelly Roll pen to highlight the branches and snow/landscape.  A yellow Posca Pen for the lights in the windows and a coloured pencil for the roof area.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink, I stamped the "Welcome" word, which was also part of the Papertrey Ink "Winter Hills" stamp set.
