These are my contributions to the Christmas Tag swap on UKS. Normally a digi scrapper, these were a bit of a challenge but I quite like the results.
The top one - Frosty - uses a freebie snowflake stamp and the only snowman one I own ... given to me in last year's Advent swap!! ... using embossing powder to make them stand out. The letters are handcut (you can tell, can't you!!), painted and glitter embossed. Add a few sequins and that's it.
The bottom two are front and back of the same one ... the back is my digi version of Dan's 3-D one.
The front is painted, sprayed with lilac mica powders made up to a mist shows better IRL ... with pale green stamped trees cut out and layered and a large star in Diamond Stickles. A few sequins and a digi title layered with a transparent one to give depth .. my first attempt at a tag.

This is my contribution to Magpie's cj .... the background is what I call "splodge" dyed - wet the fabric and just splodge on some colours and see where they go!!!. The leaves are traced from my garden and the stitches/gel pen shapes are based on Blackwork - except this fabric doesn't have an even weave and I haven't counted any threads, just guessed where to put them! The border is pen.
