(2017 c74) Christmas snowflake Tag

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For Today’s tag I got my inspiration from Mandy Stacey’s snowflake tag  seen on this post.

As you can see on the picture on the right I started by coloring paper

with Distress Inks by Ranger: Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves.  I spattered water on background and re-applied inks several times to achieve the final background, then stamped the snow flakes from A Festive Season by Penny Black with white pigment ink. There is a closeup on right showing the water spatter reactions.

I cut the big snowflakes from Shimmerz cardstock with a retired Martha Steward punch called Alpine Snowflake. 

As you can see in the picture on the left I used the negative punched out Simmerz paper & stamped & heat embossed the snowflakes with purple EP.
