Winter tag decoration and card by Karen

A while back when I coloured some sheets of watercolour paper for this autumn project, I also coloured some paper ready to celebate winter's colours: Lots of Brusho Crystal Colours in blues and some grey with Shimmer Spray in Shimmer Silver and some SprinkleIT in Iridescent Flash for lots of sparkle as the paper catches the light.

I used one part to create a quick shaker card with some stamping and die-cut silver paper:

and I used another part to create a decoration to hang on a door (or the wall).

The tag was made by gluing the paper down well on to a large heavy-weight tag (Tim Holtz etcetera), sanding round the edges and then using Soft Relief Texture Paste in Gloss White to create some snowy features. I die-cut some snowflakes and sprinkled these and the paste with SprinkleIT Iridescent Violet to add even more sparkle!

Then, with some silvery thread and other embellishements glued on and some ribbon to hang the tag up, the project was finished!

I'm looking forward to using more of the paper left over for more cards and smaller tags. Getting lots of paper coloured and dried in advance is a great way to save time at this busy time of the year!

ColourCraft SprinkleIT can be <found here> and the other ColourCraft items are below.
