Hi there everyone. It's getting late (catching up with blogs took a little longer than expected but there were some projects to drool over out there - seriously inspiring and sometimes daunting!) So I gave myself one almighty kick up the toosh today and got a tag finished for Linda Coughlin's Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas challenge sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Linda gives you her inspirational version and then gives you until Christmas to get them completed (which so takes the pressure off!) Here's Linda's...
and here's mine... the only thing I didn't attempt to replicate was the heart!!
A step by step should have happened but I sorta got into the flow.
It's really shiny but my photography skills and a severe shortage of that large, bright disk in the sky mean it doesn't show up so well here. Highlights include; a grungepaper angel (thank goodness for the cookie cutter) inked with DI Fired Brick/Walnut Stain, Rock Candy layer, gold Pearlidoodles and a piece of embroidered net curtain also covered with the same ingredients; and my banner and tiny embellies from a piece of Basic Grey paper, which I'm thinking will become a recurrent theme.
More highlights; a handcut 25 covered in several layers of Ranger Tinsel embossing powder; kraft card stars embossed, covered in pearlescent mica powder, stamped with gold embossing powder and centred with gold PVA and glitter; a tissue paper background stamped with Coffee archival ink, covered with Gingerbread versamark and pearlescent mica powder and finally stamped/embossed with clear embossing powder and DI Antique Linen. And the plan for this tag? It's is going on the front of my first Christmas card of the year. Oh yes, even I have to give in and get on with it:) The plan is that the others will follow suit and become the special family cards.
It will also be entered into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge - For The Love of Sparkle
Now my bed is calling (got to be up at 6am again) so until next time hugs to you all, Buttons x
