Funkie Junkie 12 Tags - No 7

Hello Friends

I am still beavering away working on my 12 Tags of Christmas with The Funkie Junkie, which is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique, and here I am going to show you No 7 (my eighth tag).  I have until midnight on Monday to finish the last four!!  Yikes!!

As usual I will show you Linda's tag first....

When I looked at this tag, and after I had said "Wow", I looked carefully at the elements Linda had used.  The cottage reminded me of my own home (except mine is not wooden and at the moment is not, sadly, covered in snow) and the word "Holidays" reminded me of somewhere that Hubby and I have spent holidays at Christmas where it does snow from now until the end of February.  Any regulars to my blog will know that this is Prague.

So here is my take on Linda's tag.....

I have used the kraft glassine with Ranger Ink Refresher technique, then swooshed with Bundled Sage DS and some Bronze DS and then inked with Vintage Photo DI.  I left it all to dry whilst I ate my tea and came back and finished drying it with my heat tool.  

The Charles Bridge scene is a Darkroom Door stamp as is Praha and the clock.  I stamped the scene and the Praha onto Snippets of SU Vanilla CS using Coffee Archival ink, heated them with the heat tool and on the Bridge scene, using an embossing pen I went over in places and added some schparkly embossing powder to give the feeling of crisp snow.  (I notice the lamppost on the Image looks squiffed but I assure you it isn't.  It may be the angle of the card underneath as it is only on the top edge??)  Then I edged both images with VP DI. 

Then I moved onto the background of the tag and stamped the clock image from DD, using firstly Bronze DS then secondly Black Archival ink.  I found another coffee cup protector and swooshed some Bronze DS over it, tore it to fit the image and then edged with VP DI and mounted the Bridge image on it.  

I then cut a TH Lamppost twice out of glitter cardstock, once with gold (to get the effect of light) and again in black for the post itself.  I cut the Holly out of K&Co cardstock, adhered the holly onto the lamppost and adhered some red beads onto the holly.  

The Christmas Memories embellishment is a K&Co one and the final touches were the TH Snow Tissue Tape and the ribbon, which incidentally I bought in Prague when we were there in February.

So that ends Tag 7.  Only 4 more to go, one of which I will post later (hopefully).  I am off out to a Christmas Party tonight with Scottish Dancing friends, so need to go and get showered and dressed up to go. 

Thanks for calling by.

This one is so special with the Prague connection. It is so nice that you were able to incorporate the ribbon you bought there into this tags.

Lovely variation on Linda's tag! The Charles Bridge looks fabulous against the corrugated card, and I love the mysterious depth of the background... storming ahead now!
