A One of a Kind TAG Using the "One Of A Kind Winter" Stamp from Susan K. Weckesser

Happy, Happy Day Everyone!  Today I am sharing an oversized mixed media tag created for my second Susan Weckesser design team project for November.  Tag making is something I have not done a lot of in the past, but I am loving it because this year I realized that: a) you have a tag which can be used instead of a card; b) that a blingy tag is such a beautiful decoration, you can wrap your gift in brown paper and it still looks good and c) you can hang it on the Christmas tree as an ornament and a memory.  Seriously Christmas tags may be replacing my Christmas cards next year!

I created this tag for a special, extra Large Gift for someone wonderful, featuring my very favorite "One Of A Kind Winter" snowman stamp  from Susan Weckesser/Unity Stamps.  I Stamped the snowman onto a piece of cardboard that came with a stamp set I bought, because I loved the subtle embossed dots on it, and I colored the hat and scarf using my Zig clean color brush tip markers.

For the background I applied a thin layer of white gesso and I stamped the small house from Susan's Create Your Day Unity Stamp set onto a page of thin white paper from a second-hand medical book I bought for $2.  The paper in medical books or Bibles is wonderful for this technique, tissue paper thin and brilliantly white, it is strong enough to hold up to getting wet with Mod Podge and sprays and mediums. 
Some seed pearls for door knobs, a foam pop dot for the sun and of course the final step with everything I do, a layer of Rangers Stickles and Close To My Heart Liquid Glass finishes everything off.
So that's my tag for today.... I hope it inspires you to go off and create something that will "Warm 3 Winter Months" for someone!
