Tag of Trees

It's Day 2 of Loll's Tag Challenge

For this challenge, requirements for "Mixed Media" are stamping, plus two mixed media elements (techniques or products).  The theme is Christmas.  Tags only please!

Using stamping, watercolor, alcohol ink, die cuts, heat embossing with Frantage

The tag came from my UFO box.  I think I cut it last year then couldn't decide
what to do with it.  I believe it was colored with Inka Gold smoosh technique.
It has a bit of shimmer in spots.

I stamped some winter trees with gray ink then sprinkled Frantage
chunky embossing powder and heat set from the back.

The snowbank was also a UFO and I die cut the tree from a
leftover piece of alcohol ink.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Love the layering effect you've achieved on this fabulous tag. The frantage looks great and so does that eye catching alcohol ink tree x

Love your mixed media tag. Love how you used the Frantage embossing powder on the trees in the background. Very pretty.

Love your snowy scene with layered trees Bonnie. Great job woring from your UFO box! Thanks for joining my tag event. xx

Another great tag die shape. Of course I love the snowy scene with the bare tree silhouettes behind the green foreground tree. Great design idea. And of course the frontage (which challenges me!) looks wonderful as snow. TFS & Hugs (oh yes, yay for the UFO box!)

Beautifully done, Bonnie. Love the gorgeous shade of blue in your background and your alcohol ink tree is just fabulous! Love the idea of the lighter stamping behind your focal. Wonderful tag!

Love your "snow" a great effect and the tag is awesome.

Bonnie, love the 2 tags you posted and the strategy of pulling everything out of your UFO box that is tag suitable. Such a good idea vs. starting from scratch with each one. By this time of year we can all sure use short cuts and easy ways.

Wonderful tag, Bonnie! Such a pretty soft sky - perfect for the subtle stamping of the trees. And your AI tree is a perfect focal point!

Another beauty Bonnie. Love the snow falling in the background and the bold beautiful tree.

What a sweet little tag Bonnie! I love the little winter tree stampings behind you big pine and the wonderful snow! Julia xx

It's one of the nicer tags I've seen lately. I love how you created the falling snow using Frantage. Great idea to create trees, some stamped in ink on the tag, and another tree cut from a sheet painted AI. A unique tag, Bonnie!

I"m all for leftovers when they go together to make something as wonderful as this, Bonnie.
