I used Wet on Wet watercoloring with a #8 paint brush to add several layers of Distress Inks: Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Black Soot. When dry I used the same technique to add Distress Inks to my rectangle.
Next I masked my rectangle and stamped the snowflakes, sponged the edges of tag with Black Soot, added the Chevron ribbon, linen thread, wood snowflake and sentiments.
How long did this take...oh a couple of days as layers dried and I needed time to think about the next step. I had plenty of other things to do between the steps, so I did not mind!
The very last step....hurray! Snow flake splatters with diluted white acrylic paint using a paint brush.
Enjoy and hope you get to play along with Loll and Friends Tag Event. You have until November 25th to join the fun with your tags. Hugs.....
