Hi crafty friends!!

I wanted to share a tag featuring "Hannah", one of the stamps in the Mythical Reflections collection at SCACD. I LOVE the style of these stamps...they are beautifully drawn and so much fun to colour. I pulled out an Inkssentials Tag and gave it a coat of acrylic paint. I chose some snowflake design paper and matted it with white cardstock. You can check out the vast selection of 6x6 paper pads at SCACD HERE. All the paper edges were given a frosted look by brushing on some white acrylic paint and coating it generously with Glamour Dust. This is my absolute favourite dry glitter. :) I used a Memory Box Die to create the decorative border. This was covered with Tombow Glue, sprinkled with the Glamour Dust and jazzed up with some rhinestones.  To finish it off, I added a snippet of ribbon and an acrylic snowflake that was covered with Stardust Stickles and centred with a rhinestone.

Hannah was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. Her wings, staff and over-skirt were treated to a little Stardust Stickles...there is no shortage of glitter on this snowy tag!

Your coloring never ceases to amaze me. I especially love how you add the shading to create muscles and bone under that gorgeous skin.

I also love all the snowy glitter details.
