FrostedWinter CT Results



.....I saw this kit and I normally have the hardest times with "black and white" tags but I wanted to challenge myself because I personally think this kit was stunning. So I began my challenge with not just one but two tags!!! I began putting my first tag together and I was fascinated with how well everything was working out, beautiful snowflakes, Christmas elements, and other winter elements all just fell into place and while making one tag, in my head I was already working out the 2nd tag too. Gorgeous frames with a subtle sparkle to them, flowers, and even bows - Trees and tree branches, along with gorgeous baubles.- as you can tell there are many beautiful elements to choose from.... Here are the previews of the kit and the 2 CT Tags that I put together.I hope you like the results and will purchase this kit and work out your own amazing tags. Thank you for another beautiful kit Foxy!!!



You can buy this gorgeous kit HERE

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
