Frosty Tag

I've been trying to sneak in the 12 Days of Tags with Tim Holtz - so for my last post for the Robin's Nest, I was able to take on Tim's Day 4 challenge! I changed things up a bit, though, so I could use some sparkly Robin's Nest Papers.

Did you know that the glittered areas on Robin's Nest papers act as a wonderful resist? My snowman was cut out of White Snow Glitter Cardstock, but then I used Distress Stain in Broken China to change the color and to really highlight the designs. Next, I painted over the image with Rock Candy Crackle Paint. After it was dry, I rubbed Faded Jeans Distress Ink into the cracks. I think this was a fun change for the tag!

I've enjoyed being on the DT for the Robin's Nest for the past six months and although I didn't reapply for a second term, I know the ladies staying on will continue to inspire you, and the new crew as well! Thanks for your generosity throughout my time with you!
