Merry Snowflakes!

Hello all, another quick tag share for you today... and another one where I have to thank my team-mate, Linda Coughlin, for her fabulous inspiration.  This was another make inspired by her Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas.

I used all Artistic Outpost stamps for mine, so I thought I'd share it with you here today.
I used one of the fabulous Father Christmases from the Snowy Woods plate, stamped on a whitewashed book page, with torn and inked edges.
The snowflakes (large ones from Snowy Woods, smaller ones from Sleigh Ride) were clear embossed over an Faded Jeans inky background, and then the whole thing got a layer of Picket Fence Distress Paint to mute the colour, and leave the snowflakes gleaming.
And the sentiment stamp is another of the delights from the A4 sized Snowy Woods stamp sheet... I'm 99% sure that this would be my desert island Christmas stamp set.  If I could have only one, this would be it!
A little rusty jingle bell, twine, some wooden stars and a trimming cut with the Vintage Lace Decorative Strip Die finish the whole thing off... and there we have a Christmas tag in my favourite colour combination.  Thanks for the inspiration, Linda!

If you've been inspired to play with Artistic Outpost stamps, then come and share your creations with us in the Referral Program.  There's a prize and the honour of a Top 3 pick at stake, and we'd love to see you there!  Good luck with the final Christmas preparations...

Oh, Snowy Woods would definitely be my desert island stamp choice too! I love your take on the tag - my favourite colours and the Gothic script on the book pages is just lovely too! Hope your Christmas preparations are going smoothly too! Julie Ann xx
