Let It Snow(men)


Hello everyone,
Here is my DT project for the new Mood Board at SumMore Fun/Victorine Originals, I honestly had a hard time since we are in a heat wave again this week (got to love Southern California) but I love cooler weather and so I put my thinking cap on and thought SNOWMEN! and I have this great border stamp from Victorine Originals that is adorable and then I thought well Christmas is coming (I can say that now that Thanksgiving is over, right?) and what do I always need, tags! So let's jump in and see how this came together:
I started by die cutting the tag from a piece of watercolor card stock and then stamped these adorably cute snowmen in Hero Arts wet concrete and then water colored with my zig clean color real brush pens.  I just did a very light blue wash in the background then when dry went over it again, and then a dab of orange for the carrot nose and then a light green for the scarf and a dab of dark red on the buttons, each snowman was then finished off with a coat of spectrum noir clear glitter.... because glitter! Here is a picture before I folded the tag over and added the hanger:
 After it was dry I folded it over and used a small piece of double sided sticky tape to close it and then added the hole and hanger string.
Then I found these clear gemstones that look almost like diamonds and attached a couple of them for some more added interest and then it was done.  Quick and easy and I can tuck some cash inside or a little note and attach to a gift or the tree.
