Hunt the snowman!

Hey there bloggers,
Well over Sunday stampers @ http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/ run by the super talented Hels, it is snowmen on the menu, so here is my offering..
I did a tag as I have decided not to make the dreaded christmas cards and so wanted to play, I crackled the background of the tag using emulsion and crackle medium..When dry I added iced spruce, (which is from the winter set of DI and I love it,yummy colour,), then I inked up my new stamps from the stamp man, thanks Jill..I was chuffed to have been picked for the prize and these Tim stamps were what I used my prize voucher towards...they are even better than I hoped, still what more could I have expected from TIM. Anyway, enough rambling, I stamped the snowflakes using iced spruce randomly over the background and then when dry added small pearls to centres. The left hand side is yet again tissue wrap from Tims district market range, which I love..I coloured with picket fence distress stain, left to dry, spritzed with perfect pearls mist and then when dry added iced spruce.
The snowflakes are using kraft paper and alcohol inks, trying to replicate a Tim technique.
Finally I added some more pearl glitter, thanks mum!,a snowman and the greeting...I called it hunt the snowman..as when I put him on the tag he looked a bit small!!!!
I added a snowflake charm and some beads added onto wire.The ribbon is a staple for me vintage seam binding!!

I am entering this for the following competitions:
