12 Days of Crafter's Christmas Wishes - Tags

This month Crafter's Companion is celebrating 12 Days of Crafter's Christmas Wishes.

Today is all about tags. Sometimes you need a really big tag for a really big present.  The main image for this really big tag is from Makey Bakey Christmas EZMount Stamp Set - Festive Fun & FrolicsThe background uses trees from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Pinescape.

Spectrum Noir Blending Solution.

jacket: 024, 026, 058, 119

skates: 024, 065, 119
mouse: 035, 090, 092

For the background, I stamped the trees with Distress Ink Pads pine needles, mowed lawn

To make the sky, I used an Ink Sweeper with Distress Ink Pad tumbled glass in a horizontal motion, from the outside in, leaving blank areas to give the illusion of clouds. I also made the first layer of the icy lake in the same way - with less blue. The snow on the ground and second layer of icy lake were made by lightly rubbing a Memento LUXE Ink Pad wedding white in a horizontal motion.  I used a white gel pen to add snow to the pines trees. 

I cut out the cute little skating mouse, edged him with a black water-based marker and adhered him down with Collall All Purpose Glue.  I added his whiskers and skating trail in with a black gel pen.  The sentiment is also from  Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Pinescape stamped with Distress Ink Pad black soot and colored with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils 024, 026. Added some matching ribbon and he is ready to go on a really big present!
