I masked off the moon and used three different shades of blue distress ink along with black soot to create my base tag. The snowflakes and the sentiment, perfect for this one hey, are from an old set from HOTP. The houses are from Crafty Individuals and my Fairies (complete with the required Fairy Dust lol) are from Lavinia Stamps.
I've been adding these snowflakes on to everything at the moment, they are so pretty, this one had a little distress treatment though, to blend in.
Pop over to our challenge via the link on my sidebar and check out the great tags my team mates have come up with and join in our magical dreams, please don't forget to use at least one real stamp on your tags. Happy Dreaming Elizabeth x

I stamped him out in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and watercoloured him for a soft vintage look, to fit in with Hels theme this week.

But we are Girlies on a mission to get fit again, me after tearing a muscle in my thigh last year, and big Sis who has lost lots of weight this year, and wants to tone up, so it has to be done!!!

I've been painting and drawing again just recently, full circle for me as this is where I started out selling my artwork over 30 years ago. I started by creating a watery background with pan pastels then carefully drew my mermaid over the top. I took out some of the colour using an eraser then coloured in my mermaid again using the pan pastels. The stamp I've used is from Lavinia and stamped out in Tumbled Glass Distress ink.I added a little journalling and the tag will have a new home in the journal I'm working in at the moment with a whole load of fish, seahorses and other mermaids. We hope you enjoy our challenge this time, come over to join in and check out what my fab team mates have been up to, the link is on my sidebar, just don't forget the recipe and at least one real stamped image.

I decided to keep this one simple, and embossed all the layers with Wow's Silver Sparkle Regular, a gorgeous sparkly powder when it's heated. Then coloured in sections of the snowflake with a water brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The edge of the base image was inked around the edge with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

The stamp is one of Imagination Crafts, stamped out and heat embossed with Wow Brass Sparkle Regular, my favourite powder! Coloured in using Lyra Polycolour pencils, I added pearls along with some ribbon and did have a bow on there, but decided it looked better without it.
