Winter Wonderland

Inspired by Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas last week, here's another tag I created with Artistic Outpost's Sleigh Ride, Ephemeral Backgrounds,  and Think and Wonder plates.

Using the Resist Technique, I stamped the trees from Artistic Outpost's Sleigh Ride set in White Snowcap and heat set.  To add the color to the tag, I smooshed lines of Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough, Festive Berries and Crushed Olive onto my non stick craft sheet sprirtzed then smooshed the tag.  Doing it this way allowed me to have more of a scenic looking background.  The Post Card text is from the Ephemeral Background plate, the sweet children are from Think and Wonder.  The children are stamped on Vanilla card stock in Coffee Archival then colored with STAEDTLER Marsgraphic Markers and Karat Aquarell Watercolor pencils.  I roughed up the edges a bit to add some dimension then adhered them to the tag using 3L Adhesive Sheets.
Happy Holidays!
