Love You Snowy Heart Tag



Hello Friends

I wanted to make a project  for the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge. This month the challenge is white stamping. If you know me and my blog this is one of my favourite techniques to work with white embossing powder. I also happened to pick up the February issue of the Craft Stamper yesterday so I wanted to use the free heart stamp that came with it.  I am still home in Scotland for the holiday's still so I don't have all of my craft supplies but I did bring a few supplies with me and I happened to have another heart stamp that I used to create the top and bottom border.

I stamped my tag and embossed it with white embossing powder then I used my Peerless Watercolour paints to colour it. I really love the way they blend together. I went for a two tone look with the raspberry and plum colours.   The tag was so absorbed with water that the paper started to pill. I loved the way it left a snowy effect behind once I rubbed the dried in pills away. Don't you live it when unexpected things happen when you craft? I backed the tag on to some gold card and went around the edges with the embossing powder to give it a border. Then I added some little details a button and some twine to finish.

I hope you like my tag thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
