Brusho tag - snowflakes or fireworks!

Hi, this is another brusho experiment from yesterday.
I wanted to use this snowflake stamp and modified a snowflake die to match the shape.

I'm joining Loll's twelve tag's of christmas link up.

There are lots of gorgeous tags and I think it's almost closed so I'm just scraping in. There are already some beautiful snowflake tags, so I nearly didn't add mine, but thought I would as I used a different product for the background.

I hand cut the tag from a scrap of watercolour paper, stamped some white snowflakes and white embossed. Then I spritzed it with water and sprinkled on some brusho powders and spritzed a little more to blend the colours.

The white snowflakes were lost in the blues so I re stamped and embossed over the top in silver. I did the same to the sentiment and added a black layer as it gave it more dimension.

This is a mixed media linkup so I've used stamps, ink, brushos, and added more dimension with multicoloured embossing, the metal diecut snowflake and bling.

Since I used a scrap of watercolour paper and a snippet of metal sheet I'm also going to visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
 I've got a thermos of tea and some cake to munch on while I wait for the gates to open.

Memory Box Rizza snowflake die ( I cut off some of the details); metal sheet; brushos; Bo Bunny snowflake stamps; Annabelle Stamps sentiment; white, silver and black inks and clear embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
