Snowman Tag

Just wanted to share a tag that I made for Christmas. I am finally starting to think about it! Yikes!
I had so much fun playing with this new Tim Holtz stamp and die set that I just received in the mail.

First I used Peeled Paint and Pumice Stone Distress inks on my craft pad and spritzed with water. I dragged the card thru the inks and then set it with a heat gun.  I spritzed the tag with some water and heat set again. I love that look! Then I dragged it thru some Barn Door Distress ink. I wanted color, but not real dark.
I stamped the snowman, and then I colored him a little with Picket Fence Distress paint. More coloring was done with Distress Markers, except for the holly and berries. For these, I used Perfect Pearls and Stickles. His eyes and mouth are Liquid Pearl.
I heat embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.
The crinkle ribbon was white, which I stained with the Barn Door Distress Ink.

I think he turned out pretty!

I think I will link him up to Simon Says Wednesday Christmas Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is very striking, Mackie! I love that your shades of green and red are nontraditional, at least on my monitor. I love the shades and the matching dyed ribbon!!
