Tags 7 & 8

I didn't get any opportunity to make tags yesterday but I've made up for it today by making yesterday's one and today's.  You can see Tim's originals if you click on the links.

I used Weathered Wood and Broken China Distress Stains and stamped over the top.  I painted the snow on the trees with white acrylic paint.   The deer are from a set of SEI rub-ons.


 I had to have two attempts at this as the white paint in my Paint Dabber was too thin.  I think I must have put some water in it at some point.  Then I couldn't get the lid off my pot of white acrylic paint so used Dylusions Primer instead to stamp the snow flakes.   The word is from a kit (but I can't remember which one ~ sorry!)

  1. I clicked on your tag on t!m's blog today and then on your tag sample at the end. Just beautiful! I love the way you colored your backgrounds. The Peace tag feels so serene! And I love the pop of the red letters on your Joy tag!
