Let it Snow

This week, I'm sharing a tag that I made using the brand new Artistic Outpost release Christmas Chalk.  I had such a great time working with this new set from Artistic Outpost.  Here I started with a jumbo tag and cut a piece of black card stock to fit over it.  The solid white snowflakes were made using Wendy Vecchi's white embossing paste.  I created my own snowflake stencil by cutting Tim Holtz's mask product with the mini snowflake movers and shapers dies.  The flourish is white chipboard that I spread Glossy Accents on and then sprinkled on chunky glitter.  The icicles at the top, which are white CS embossed with a TH texture fade and trimmed out, also had glitter applied in the same method.

I ran a border down the left side made with the Wendy Vecchi Art Parts Scallop Trim.  I painted them black with distress paint and when dry, rubbed white craft ink over it with my finger.  I used Idea-ology Alpha Parts to spell out Let it Snow, rubbing white craft ink over them too.  Then I couldn't get the white craft ink to dry on the Alpha Parts so I ended up (don't laugh) painting it over with clear nail polish - LOL (okay, go ahead and laugh, but it worked great)!

That's it for this week's make.  Thank so much for stoppiing by.

This turned out fabulously, so you actually have the last laugh about the nail polish! It becomes a hint! This is a beautiful inspiration for the festive season soon to be upon us! Julie Ann xx
