Tims Tags 2011 - Day 4 - Snowflakes

And day 4 bites the dust. I know tomorrow I'll be behind schedule since I'll be working all day - no time to play... sigh!!
I like the background coloring technique and the filling of the number with glossy accents. Will use both of those again. The crackling is ok if you have the patience to wait for it to dry.

So the tag is white 110# cardstock cut with Tim's die. On my craft mat, applied Distress Stains "Picket Fence", "Weathered Wood", and "Broken China". Misted the tag with water and smeared it through the colors, until the whole tag was covered, dried. Inked up a flourish (Quietfire Design) stamp with Adirondack Dauber "Snow Cap", stamped and dried (cleaned stamp immediately). Stamped some holly flourish sprigs (Inkadinkado) with Distress pad Weathered Wood. Sponged Iced Spruce around edges. Dropped droplets of water and dried (these give the illusion of snow).

Die cut a piece of clear plastic packaging using Tim's on the edge "Flurries" die. Hit the edges with the "Snow Cap" dauber, let dry and adhered to edge of tag with double sided tape. Trimmed off excess plastic.

Die cut 3 snowflakes (Spellbinders "Ironworks") from 110# cardstock and adhered them together to get a thick snowflake. Applied a thick layer of "Rock Candy crackle paint. Allowed it to dry for several hours, then sponged Broken China into the cracks. Adhered to card and added a large blue rhinestone.

Cut the 25/heart with my electronic cutter, again cutting 3 of them and adhering them together. Sponged Distress Festive berry and clear embossed. Cut another heart without the 25 and stamped a festive music stamp onto it with Versafine Black Onyx, sponged Distress Antique Linen and applied to back of heart. Filled in the 25 with the Glossy Accents, set aside to dry. Adhered to tag.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with the black. PS should have stamped it before adding the heart - c'est la vie.

Tied some fun fibers onto a white button and then adhered to tag.

And it fits for these challenges:
