Brrrr  Blues... it's cold outside...

even here at the ranch in lower Texas.  No snow though!!! Yeah!

This is a 2.5" by 4.75" tag. For some reason, I enjoy making tags.  

As always, I used some nature from the ranch!  

I put gesso on the tag first - it used to be bright pink!!!  The added ink sprays to achieve the brilliant blue color.  Before it was completely dry - I stenciled on the leaves with modeling paste so it soaked up just enough of the blue color to make a pretty silhouette.

I also sprayed the crochet leaves with an ink and added some moss around the log.  A little white embossing powder helped to add the snow on the log.  The log and twigs are from a COLD creative scavenger hunt for this project - all from here on the ranch. 

We have deer at the ranch too - every evening they are right outside my window.  I used a little silver metal deer for this snowy scene. He has a little snow bird on his tail... looking for warmth!! Brrrrr... it's cold outside!!!   

The star is a die cut with added glitter.  And the ribbon has a silver edge to compliment the silver deer.  

Thanks for letting me share! Joi@RR
