Impression-Obsession's Challenge-Tag It!

Tomorrow is surgery day. While I'm glad I may be at the end of over a decade of leg pain, I'm not looking forward to the next week. Recovery is icky. Not showering for 10 days is even ickier. I can promise that if I don't start winning a challenge or two around this place, I may bring my ickiness over to visit.

Well, peeps...I done made a tag. I took an IO snowflake to make impressions over the gaw-geous salty ocean distress paint then clear embossed. Next was the bronze overlay that I let dry a bit before wiping most of it off in hopes that most of you will murmur in hushed tones at how easy I make distressing look. Never mind this is the ONLY TIME IT HAS EVER WORKED FOR ME IN MY LIFE! All that matters is that YOU, dear people, will never know this.

I painted the largest snowflake of the three with bronze distress paint, glittered it up and suspended it. I used my IO sentiment to finish it off.
