Before I share my creation, I would like to welcome two new followers - Caroline B. and Jade Morrison - thank you for joining me! If you would like to leave a comment with a link to your blog, I will pop over for a visit.
Today I am sharing a tag! I have been inspired by Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, specifically Lindsay Amrhein's tag on Day 1. I like the winter scene on her tag.
I was also inspired by Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities - Be Inspired challenge. On her November 5 inspiration, Jennifer used digital overlays on a winter scene photo, and here I've used a digital image on my winter scene.
The cute little Mug Bear is this month's progressive challenge image at Gerda Steiner Designs. Since I participated in Gerda's challenge last month, I received this month's image for free!
I coloured the bear with Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape. I die-cut a tag using MFT Stitched Traditional Tag Stax and inked the sky with Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks. I added Fran-tage to look like snowfall. I die-cut the snowy landscapes with Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes and stamped a sentiment from Stampin' Up. I punched a hole using a punch and added American Crafts baker's twine.
