Winter Wonderland

It’s time for another fabulous challenge at Pattie’s Creations. This time the challenge is to Make a Tag. That’s right, we want to see your tags. It can be a tag on a card or an actual tag the choice is yours.

I decided to make a tag for a gift for my project. And to make my tag I used 2 of Pattie’s incredible images, Merry Christmas Lamp Post and Cardinal Branch Snow. I decided to make a little mini scene with them…well, you’ll see what I mean…

I coloured them with my Staedtler pencil crayons and oms. I used my bronze metallic pen for the lamp post and sign and my gold glitter pen for the flames inside the lamp and sign. I coloured beneath the sign to make it look like a sidewalk or road and then lightly penciled in my snow hills and the pond in between them.  I made the snow with my homemade white flower soft (I rubbed 2 styrofoam balls together) and then added stickles to the branch with my Cardinal for the snow there. I used my SU Pastels and scalloped punch to give some difference in colour for the sky. The tag is one that I got as a freebie from Birds Cards. The red ribbon, the gold Merry Christmas and dp is from my stash and the cs is by Bazzil.

To check out all my team mates fabulous creations and to join in on the fun, just head on over to Pattie’s Creations Challenge Blog. We can’t wait to see what you create.

Thanks for visiting….Charlene
