Snowman Tag


I'm in a snowman tag swap at ArtHaven, and got this one done quickly with the help of Tim Holtz's seasonal grungeboard.  All the snowman components were there for me to alter.

I used picket fence (that would be white) distress crackle paint on the body, and while it was still wet sprinkled some glitter on top.  The hat was inked with black, then smeared with rock candy distress stickles.  The holly I used to decorate the hat was just inked and some tiny bells attached with thin red ribbon.  This time of year you can find those bells all over.

The snowman's arms were sprayed with a walnut mica spray.  The eyes are black brads, the buttons black dew drops.

The carrot nose was inked and also smeared with the rock candy distress stickles (do I love that stuff?  YES!)

The scarf is just a bit of ribbon from my stash.


For the tag itself, all I did was paint it a dark blue, then emboss it with a snowflake embossing folder, swipe over the embossed areas with white pigment ink, sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat set.
