Christmas Tag–Snowy Winter

Snowman w border

For the background on this manila tag, I applied Distress Stains randomly, directly to the tag: Brushed Pewter, Tumbled Glass, Picket Fence, and Weathered Wood.

I used the Dylusions Let it Snow Stencil and Perfect Pearls White Opal for the snowflakes. The grunge snowman was painted with white acrylic and then sprinkled with Rock Candy Dry Stickles while the paint was still damp. The edges of the snowman were inked with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The seam binding was stained with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and Tumbled Glass Distress Stain.

For the bottom of the tag, I ruched the brushed pewter-stained seam binding.
