Hello there Peeps
I have now got up to no. 9 of the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas - Hurrah!! This Challenge is sponsored by Funkie Junkie Boutique. Still three more and two bonus tags to do - eek! Where did the time go?
Click HERE to see Linda's tag inspiration and here is mine......
From Linda's tag I took the colours, the stamping on the plain tag with a snowflake stamp (free from Craft Stamper some time ago) before adding a mix of distress inks (Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Blue Jeans which I dabbed onto my craftsheet and then added water before dipping the tag in. I didn't feel there was enough depth so I spritzed a little Stream Colourwash which I was happy with. Whilst I had the Colourwash out I sprayed some Prima flowers (VOS) which were a wishy washy grey/lilac colour and then added some silver embossing powder and embossed them. I wish you could see them IRL as they look better than the photographs.
I also took the Snowflake and Heart theme. Anyone who knows me will know that I have a collection of hearts in my kitchen. I cut some Spellbinders snowflakes in different sizes using white cardstock and silver glittered cardstock. I also cut a silver heart using a Sizzix die. I layered the snowflakes with blue twine (VOS) and added some TH leaves which I embossed with silver embossing powder in several layers before adding some MS glitter whilst the powder was still molten.
Sorry about the photography. I had to use the flash as the mornings are too dark The red background is the Christmas runner on the bay window. Some of the snowflakes are looking a little pink because of red background. I assure you they are white.
A silver star and diamante pins through the top of the heart snowflake, some Czech ribbon tied with sheer ribbon and blue twine and my tag was finished.
I hope you like it. I can see some of these ideas being transferred onto cards next Christmas.
Thanks for calling by. I am just going to pop this over to the Snippets Playground as the cardstock used for snowflakes, leaves and glitter stock were all from my Snippets Box.
