Hi, how was your Christmas? Mine wasn't quite what we were expecting with a huge disappointment, as we ended up spending it alone instead of having a houseful of family with us. So today, I decided to dust myself down and ease myself back in to what I love doing, crafting, by making this winter tag scene.
I started with a plain white tag, using Funky Fossil Designs "Blending Brushes" and four shades of Archival inks, I created the background colour. Starting in the middle of the tag with "Pink Peony", then "Coffee" then "Acorn" finally on the very edges I used "Plum.
Using Versafine Clair "Acorn" brown ink, I stamped the Funky Fossil Designs "Tree Rings" stamp. I then added a few splatters of black Posca Pen as I felt it needed some darker areas.
I decided at this stage, I wanted the edges of the tag a little darker, so used Versafine Clair "Chianti" dark red ink with a finger dauber to darken the edges. While the ink was out, I stamped the "Enjoy the ride" sentiment, which is part of the Funky Fossil Designs "Small Print #2" stamp set.
I used dark green card and the Funky Fossil Designs "Tree Silhouette" die set with my Big Shot to cut the tree shapes, glueing into position.
Finally, I added some white paint to the branches of the trees and also added some splatters to the ski to provide the look of snow.
