A Snowy Tag

The latest challenge over on Tag Tuesday is Snow Tags - I thought this one would work.

Add the top layer of a paper towel mop up sheet to a #8 manilla tag. Seal it with matte medium, dry with a heat gun and trim the excess.

Add the forests from the Woodland and Let It Snow Miniature stamp sets from Clarity Crafts in Black Soot archival ink. Add an offset shadow to each in Hickory Smoke archival ink.
Brush Midnight Blue artistry ink over the top of the tag (above the tree line) using a Clarity stencil brush.
Add a moon into the sky by pouncing white acrylic paint through the moon mask outer with a foam tool.
Add the ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ stave (a discontinued stamp) across the moon and sky in Black Soot archival ink.
Add the man and child and the dog stamp from the Family Miniatures stamp set in the same ink as before.
Add yellow shading to the music stave and blue shading to the ground beneath the characters feet using watercolour pencils. To finish, hand write a snowy sentiment using a black micron pen.
