Grungie Snowflakes

Here is my entry for this weeks Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Number 20. I've had a break for a few weeks, but it was great to wake up this morning and feel like I wanted to make something.
The actual technique may be found on page 54 0f the Cof C's.

As you can see it's a really simple tag, but I did get to use my new snowflakes die. A bit of improvisation as I wanted a silvery look, but had no silver Alcohol Ink, Pearl paint dabber seemed to work quite well though. The tag is coloured with Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage distress inks, and the snowflakes are stamped in Tumbled Glass and some have got Perfect Pearls on to try and get a frosty look.

Simple or not..I Love it!! Frosty blues are my fav and the pearl drop is such a nice finish.

Susie, it's so wonderful to see you again! YAY!!! And what a gorgeous return you've made-- this is an absolutely perfect wintertime tag. You did a beautiful job on the industrial grunge snowflakes, and the Pearl Paint Dabber really did work well for this technique. The little pearl is a brilliant touch!

I hope your muse stays fired up and that we get to see you again next week. :-)
