Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives Hop On

Today is the grand finale for the Stampendous Design Team and  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog hop! 

For my project today I used one of my mixed media backgrounds I created last weekend.  I pulled out the background  and cut it into a tag shape.
I distressed the edges with green ink.  I stamped the Cling Snow Bird and the branch twice once on the tag and another on white cardstock. I colored the bird using distress stains and a waterbrush. I used the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  foam squares to pop up my bird.  I embossed the images using Stampendous embossing powder.  I added Stampendous Ultra-fine red glitter to the berries and gave them a coating of crystal glitter.  The background has a smattering of the Mica flakes.  The Christmas Blessings stamp was stamped in brown and embossed with brown embossing powder.

Hop along for inspiration from the rest of the design team:
