Hi everyone and welcome. As ever I'm making a mad scramble for the finishing line on The Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas 2014 challenge sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. It's been great fun taking inspiration from each of the weekly tags posted by Linda and if you've missed out on any of them there's a full list of my versions at the end of this post. So now a drumroll please for my take on Tag #12...
If you've seen Linda's original version HERE you'll already have spotted the things I've copied; that wooden window frame and box were a great idea, but as I didn't have the Texture Fades embossing folder I used the Woodgrain Layering Stencil both for embossing and stencilling through with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Linda' wreath was also adorable and for mine I opted for adding drops of Glossy Accents on top of punched red card as berries. If you use a heat gun on the berries part way through drying it produces a slight dimple on them.
I was thrilled when Linda used my 'faux weathered wood' technique for her background. It worked well on the tag for this card too and I was over the moon when my friends Anne and Mo used it for their own gorgeous projects HERE and HERE.
As well as a sentiment, ribbon and die cut greenery, the card was finished with some Paper Lace Doily (stocked by The Funkie Junkie Boutique) in the window, and stencilling/splattering with Distress Inks - notice how those Distress Spray Stains have quickly become a crafting staple?!
So that's it, all 12 done (and a fair few of the required Christmas cards for this year finished as a result). I hope you've enjoyed seeing them as much as I've loved making them. There are a couple of cards still to share with you before 'the big day' arrives.
For now take care of yourselves and have a great week. Jenny xxx
