iSpy a Christmas Tag!

Hi everyone! Today I'm back with both a iSpy Sketches project made with goodies from eclectic Paperie :D This week we are featuring  Christine Okken ChristineCreations at SCS) and is inspired by this card.

I started out with an Inkssentials #5 Manila Craft Tag and then went to town adding layers of Ranger Distress Inks to create the background (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Pine Needles, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo) with my Inkssentials Foam Blender. I created more depth around the edges of the tag with the darker inks and then added some "snow" with some watered down white acrylic paint in a Mini Mister :). I then added some of the the snowflakes from the Graphic 45 Nutcracker set to add to my whole snowy theme. I ended up heat embossing them with white embossing powder so that they really stood out against the green backdrop.

I created the fishtail banners with some of the Authentique Peaceful Line and then added a couple of little die cut Spellbinders swirls that were made with vellum and the snowflakes were made with the MFT snowflake die. I finished off the tag with some vintage seam binding and some cappuccino twine for an added little touch of whimsy :)

Thanks for coming by today and don't forget to check out the blogs below for more inspiration and please tune into the iSpy Blog next week for a very important announcement :)

As you are closing your I spy sketches blog. :( I thought I would follow you here as I loved I spy Sketches and always looked at it and nearly always did one of the challenges.. So thought I must keep in touch just in case you decide to do something just as wonderful down the track when you find you have more time.. Thank you so much I have thoroughly enjoyed playing along and will miss my weekly dose of inspiration..
