Good morning everyone!

A new challenge starts today over at Try it on Tuesday and this time we want to see Snowflakes on your project!

I made a gift tag and card using Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes stamp set. They are colored with Copics and I added a little detailing with a white Posca Pen. The backgrounds were created by using a smooshing technique with acetate, Mermaid Lagoon and Cracked Pistachio DO inks. 
Once dry I mixed a very small about of Mermaid Lagoon ink & modeling paste and applied it through Newton's Nook Snowfall stencil. I really like how light in color the snowflakes turned out and below you can see the texture a little bit better :)   
I used a Newton's Nook die for the trees, a MFT die for the 'joy' sentiment, a Memory Box die for the landscape and TH dies for the snowflakes & tag and that's about it!

Now head on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of my teammates beautiful creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for the comments you leave!

How fun Tammy. I love you chose the green instead of the traditional snowy sky colors. What fun. And I love those Paper Smooches stamps too. Too bad she is not in business (I don't think she is at least) anymore. Have a wonderful month and holiday too. Hugs-Erika

Your "snow dudes" are so cute and funny. They are adorable and have me grinning from ear to ear. So cute and clever. I really LOVE that background, too. Both the tag and the card backgrounds came out great. You provided two beautiful examples of inspiration and I love them both.
