Embossed Snowflake Tag

Yesterday, I finished a book called "Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells at The Christmas Fair" by Heidi Swain.  Available to purchase in book form and kindle here.  It is a lovely book and left me feeling all Christmassy, which inspired me to make this snowflake tag.

To make this tag, I started by dragging an anti static cushion across the surface of the tag, this Iremoves any residue from handling.

I used a Versamark (water mark stamp pad) on the snowflake, stamping the image onto the tag.  I then covered the surface with clear embossing powder.  Using a heat gun, I heated the image till the embossing granules melted into each other, which provides a raised surface to the image.

Next, I selected three Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the coloured background.  Splattering the surface with little darker dots.  Once dry, I then added some water droplets to the surface of the tag which creates a more mottled look.

Finally, I added the "Seasons Greetings" sentiment (I've had it for ages, so don't have a clue who made it).
