I love the shimmer of the snowman, and the splatter effect, too. Nice and cool looking.

Very cool!! (Pun intended! ;) ) I really like how you did the snowflake punches in the tag and backed them with adhesive and powder---so neat! and the snowman is so cute!

Great job!! And TFS all the details too!

Fabulous combination of techniques Daniel! Thanks for elaborating on the punched areas.

Thanks for all the details in this! I had no idea the splatter was created by a stamp, how cool! The snowman is very sparkly on person, kinda how snow is when sunlight hits it. Held up to the light the punched out flakes really pop out. Great job on the tag, it turned out fantastic!!:)

I love this! The splatter stamp is really neat and is very effectivce for snow. I love the snowflakes punched out and the sparkly snowman looks great!

Galleries: Stamping

I started with a large manilla tag (It's not pink). I used 3 different sized snowflake punches on the tag base & stamped it with a ‘splatter’ stamp (Hampton) & bright blue dye ink. Then I applied a shipping label to the back of the tag. I used powder to ‘de-sticky’ the snowflake openings.

The snowman (Hampton) was stamped on plain copy paper with the same blue ink. I backed it with a label to add thickness & fussy cut the shape. Before adding it to the tag, I wiped on a good layer of glitter paint (Tulip Crystals-Pacific Blue). Used ScorTape along the neck to attach him to the tag. The hang thread (bright blue) is rattail from a gift tag.

The snowflakes show up best when the tag is held up to light. I considered stamping on the tag's reverse so the design would show up when held up to light, but decided not to mess with it–this time. ;-D
