Melting Snowman

Hi there everyone, here is Day 10 of the challenge "Twelve Tags of Christmas" with Loll and Friends, Today I have called this tag Melting Snowman, he wasn't intended to be melting, I used Tim Holtz Embossing folder "Snowman" he is the lovely snowman who is facing sideways, I covered him with Embossing ink and also embossing powder and used the heat  gun, but it didn't work out as it should have, then I decided to cover him with Texture paste, but I wasn't able to cover him neatly, and then I had to use two layers as the first one took on the red colour from the card, I found two little black beads for his eyes but didn't have enough for his buttons, on his face there was a little bit that I couldn't get the texture paste on and I thought, OK I will call it his mouth, and I used an Distress Marker
Carved Pumpkin for his nose, I drew some holly leaves and berries for his hands with gel pens.   I used Tim Holtz "Stars" stencil for the stars, but again the texture paste absorbed the red card colour so I outlined them with a white gel pen,  I also used the gel pen for the snow.   I used a red and white gingham ribbon and attached a small brass snowflake to the bow with a small brass safety pin, and used a small stamp for the Merry Christmas with distress ink pad "Black Soot"  hope you like this one, I was almost going to toss him in the bin, but he had taken so much time that I thought he looked unique, so here he is!   Thanks so much for visiting today, Jasann

  1. Hi Jasann. Good job to keep going to figure out your snowman. He's cute ... and has lot of texture. Love the red tag with the stars and the charm. Sweet tag. Thanks for sharing at my tag event.
