I hope you are all well and happily crafting away wherever you are.
Yesterday, on my workdesk was a pile of bits and pieces that I was working on, including this tag which I finished off later in the day. One for Di's Snippet Challenge as I've used a couple of snippets in the making.
First snippet, I used a piece of the paper I'd stamped using bubble wrap and paint to cover this small tag. (I've decided that I must use these bits of leftover painty, inky, experimental backgrounds immediately instead of dumping them in a box just to be forgotten!) Then I stamped snowflakes here and there using VersaMark which was then heat embossed with white powder - hard to see in the photo but much better in real life. Second snippet, the lace border .. it's a stamp - again white embossing powder on VersaMark onto a snippet of turquoise cardstock.
The deer die-cut (a very welcome gift from a friend - I don't have the die ... yet, sigh) has also been stamped with snowflakes and, this time, embossed with crystal powder before inking with TH's Peacock Feathers ink pad - I think I've said it before, love this colour! He's been placed on a piece of gauze ribbon which I think adds to the frosty feel I was trying to achieve.
The silver snowflakes are from some trim I have had forever - I'm sure I only bought a yard of it but it does seem to be neverending ... ditto the bobble trim!!! The green trim is washi tape - new to me and I love it for the colour ... it's patterned with chevron stripes which are 'so on trend' :) Final snippet. the sentiment is from the same stamp set as the snowflakes and only used a tiny oval of smooth white card.
A manila tag #5; a snippet of white card for sentiment; strip of turquoise cardstock for stamped lace trim
