This Fortnight's challenge theme is:

We love when you guys and gals think outside of the box.  The more creative and inventive, the better!  You know those projects you WANT to make, but would be shunned from mainstream sites?  They are accepted here!  We get down and dirty.  We like it real, raw, and in your face!  Let your artistic expression fly freely or not as the case maybe.
ANYTHING GOES..... everything is long as there is a stamped image(rubber or digi) somewhere on your project.

Here is my offering for week 1 of the SA Challenge:
Click image to enlarge.

I used one of the new stamps from Smeared Ink's Rubber Club.  The set is called "Dark Holidaze" and was drawn by Rick St. Dennis.  If you haven't bought your set yet, it can be purchased exclusively as a "past offering" from Smeared Ink's Rubber Club.  The stamp set is an 8.5 X 11 sheet of unmounted deeply etched red rubber.

I will write more details later.  My power is back on, but my internet connection is still a bit sketchy from the storms.  Be sure to check out Smudgy Antics to see what the rest of the DT has made for your inspiration.
OK, as promised, here are the details:  My Snowman is colored with Copic markers, the background is Distress inks in Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire.  I used the MS Drippy Goo punch along the sides of the tag and backed the tag with white card.  I added DecoArt Glistening Snow-Tex DS46-4 as well as the DecoArt Glistening Snow Writer DS75-3 to the drippy goo punched out areas as well as the bottom of the tag. 

Aside from the links provided, DecoArt products can be purchased at Hobby Lobby, Michael's Arts and Crafts, and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft stores.  For a listing of stores in your area that carry DecoArt products, Click here.  I finished my tag with a simple ribbon tied in a bow.
