12 tags Day 3 and The Stamp Man challenge blog

Today is day 3 for Tim's 12 Tags and you can find his tag here . Over at the Stamp Man Challenge blog their new challenge is up and the challenge is to use just 3 colours so I decided to combine the 2 and create my tag # 3 for the challenge. I used Walnut Stain, Stormy sky and Fired Brick. I decided to make an icy looking tag because it is so brrrrrr Cold out!

For the background I used Stormy Sky Distress ink. the snowflakes are Tim's winter stamps embossed with(you guessed it) Moon glow Silver moon Turquoise EP. The tree is another of Tim's winter stamps inked with Stormy sky Distress ink then filled in a bit with Walnut stain Distress ink. The image is then embossed using the Moon Glow Silver moon 2 X . The tag is edged in Walnut stain Distress ink and tied with a piece of sparkly white lace.
The bird is really just red but it reflected the light a bit to look like it has white specks on it but it does not. I used Tim's bird stamp and stamped in Fired Brick Distress ink then cut out and covered with Distress crackle glaze and Rock Candy Stickles. The edges are inked with Walnut Distress ink. The nest is made from Flowersoft Ivory mixed with Walnut ink Distress ink and Crackle glaze.

The flower is cut from Tim's Tattered Florals then stamped with his Christmas Carol music stamp using Stormy sky Distress ink. It is then covered with Distress crackle glaze. The middle is filled with beads and Rock Candy Stickles. The top of the lace is covered with a clear ribbon covered with Rock Candy stickles and beads. the sign is stamped with a Prima frame stamp a inked with Storm sky Distress ink then wiped with a baby wipe and cut down to a smaller size. I also added the beads and Rock Candy stickles here too and roughed the edges then inked with Walnut stain Distress ink. It is held on with a piece of silver twisted wire.

Here is the picture of all the trees out the window and my inspiration today. It never did warm up at all so they still look like this all covered in ice. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day. Angela
