Snow Angel

 Snow Angel is tag #12 of Tims 12 tags of Christmas... and I wanted to create this tag for Inspiration Emporium's challenge too...  
So here it is... I had made a house that sort of combined the two new techniques in it... but wanted to do all 12 tags too... 


So I started out with a white tag and stamped using a new Tim Stamp set...  Joyful Song...  I love the angel and the markings... or words and numbers... and that is what I used...  then I used the Tissue paper... love that stuff... if you haven't tried it... it is a MUST...  love using it... I put the paper on with glue and seal... and it was dry really quick.... meanwhile I put some dabber snow white onto the snowflakes that I cut out ... as I really loved that look that Tim got in Tag #4.... so I put the dabber and also the picket Fence Distress Stickles on it... hope it will dry soon... it is still wet... !!!  




 I made the tree using a piece of white card stock... and used my ICED SPRUCE to color it... and then used Forest moss Distress stain on an Impression Obsession 6x6 stamp with the pine boughs... love that stamp.. and I have used it a lot lately... 

Then I cut an elongated triangle out... and then used Forest Moss Distress Stickles on the edges of the tree...  




Okay... a confession to you who watch my blog and don't really know me... I love to use silver at times... but to find the metal sheets, or paper... too costly for me... so I but a roll of silver tape at Home Depot or Lowes and use it... apply it to a piece of cardstock... and then run it thru the die cuts I desire... DO NOT USE PUNCHES though... it will ruin them...  once and for all.. 

Anyway... I made my letters, my flourishes, and then found a piece of silver lace in my bins... have no idea where that came from... never saw it prior to today!!!  Anyway... put that and some dyed seam binding on the bottom... and then layered all that you see here... 
  
I made my tissue flower with a piece of scrap tissue that was left over from the tag background... and then also added a snowflake and some hat pins...  a little bow and was done...  

What do you think... snow angel or not...???  I think she is very vintage... but really like her as doll with a little bit of something on her...  like some seam binding... my dolls never looked like her... but they could have...  

Thanks for taking a look see... and also for stopping by... hope you are enjoying my Christmas tags every morning at 8:00... I have a new one every morning until Christmas... so enjoy them...  each one a little different and over a total of 27 different techniques...  I am addicted to making tags... !!!  

Have a fun day... I am going to be working on a couple of journals and some other things... more things to get done...  

See you later... Love, Light and Peace....Bonnie
