Classroom &Winter Wonderland

This tag was inspired in the Classroom at Ellen Hutson by Kittie Caracciolo.  She always gives me strong inspirations everyday. I wanted to try this tag. I love her winter tags, they are terrific,  I did mine a little different. First I Vera Marked the tag on White paper, the clouds and then did distressing for the sky, making the clouds by hand.. I die cut as she did the other elements. However; My bark tree, I cut down and removed all leaves before distressing with Antique Linen and Tea Dye, it is a Memory Box Grand Oak tree, and was to big for the tag. Before adding snow, I crimped the fir tree, I used some flower soft Polar White for snow and added white gel pen as well. Large tree is PTI Winter Meadow. The deer are from Memory Box Deer Trio and distressed with same inks as the bark tree except for the dark. then I hand tore the snow lines and crimped. and cut snowflakes with Memory Box Snowflake Burst. One last thing was to die cut the Cardinals from Impression Obsession Birch Tree
 and birds in red and the red ribbon from stash. I placed the snowflakes around to accent the scene. love how this turned out and hope to make more. tags are fun to make......thanks for looking and hope you enjoy too.
