The One That Got Away!

Good morning all.

Yesterday was another day spent organising the craft room, it's getting there slowly!

Today's share is a tag I found when moving  A4 drawers...it was tucked between two of them, obviously put there to flatten it! I hadn't even missed it!

Background has been inked with various DI using an acrylic block by the looks of things. I've used various stamps from magazine freebies to over stamp. Yesterday I finished it off with a snowman made from textured paste which I coloured with promarkers; a spray of  picket fence stain; cord from my stash and a few gems.

Challenges entered:
Amusing - winter/snow
Opus Gluei - anything but a card
Sentimental Sunday - anything but a card
That Craft Place - monochromatic
QKR Stampede - baby it's cold outside
That's Crafty - blue is the colour
CRAFT - not a card
One Crazy Stamper - blue and white plus an embellishment
Crafty Creations - brrr blues
Inspiration Destination - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - inky background
Sweet Stamps - winter blues
