Lawn Fawn: Snow Day stamps



Today, I am sharing a tag project using the Snow Day stamps & coordinating dies.  There are more projects using this set over on the Lawn Fawn Blog, as well as a giving away.

I absolutely love making tags.  They are smaller than a card, making it easier to find balance.  Sometimes cards are just too big for some stamps.
I wanted to watercolor different shades of blue onto watercolor paper.  I tend to do this when my husband is watching something uninteresting (like football) on television.  So I watercolor, let it sit overnight, ready for me to use in the morning.

The reason why my stamp is smeared...is because I stamped my sentiment, then sprayed the paper with a shimmer spritz, and it totally activated the watercolor & the ink, making it run.  I still like my project.  But I guess the lesson I take away, is spritzing shimmer before you stamp?
So far, I have a nice little stash of holiday cards ready to be used for Christmas, which makes things a whole lot let stressful around that time.
