The background on this card I did with a piece of acetate, distress ink pads plus a spritzer bottle of water. Run the ink pads over the acetate, spray with water then touch the card with the wet acetate. I painted the Penny Black snowman stamp with the same colour ink pad - broken china. The other colour was antique linen, Stickles for the glitter on the hat. The snowflakes are a MS punch.
For this set of cards I glued tissue paper onto the tag, while still wet added Tim Holtz Distress Stain in various colours. Dried off with a heat gun then stamped over with Stazon various stamps, adding dies to finish.
