The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 5


Hi everyone and tag 5 to share today for the Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas 2012 which is hosted by Linda, sponsored by her Funkie Junkie Boutique and runs until 17th December.


From Linda's gorgeous tag I've chosen to follow along with the brown colour scheme more or less, the background technique where I've also embossed snowflakes although they aren't showing up too well, the Tim Holtz Alterations die cut Noel which I've done in a similar way with the addition of lots of chunky glass glitter and the rosette which I had to make by hand as my rosette die is on the missing list :D, I'm sure it'll turn up as soon as this post goes live!

I used Tim Holtz Tissue wrap over the background of my giant tag and it's really lovely to work with. I coloured the rosette with distress stains and added a pearl berry garland around it. The die cut star is also coloured with distress stain and I used Tim's German Scrap technique for the numbers. To finish off there are lots of pearl pen dots and a bit of gold rub 'n' buff.

Thanks again for all your lovely comments, it's always a great pleasure to read them. Hoping to get round to all your blogs very soon my computer time is limited just now. Hope you have a lovely day today.

Another beautiful tag with many details. You did great on the rosette with out the die, I love the pearls twined around it. The background is so nice with all the extra pearls, well done Chris, can I keep pinning them!?
Hugs and Merry Christmas

Hey Chris! I just ordered that Noel die -- if that is a giant tag, it looks like the Noel will be pretty big. Your bow is perfect. How in the world did you learn all these techniques anyway. You know I do love all your creations. Hope all is well Chris.

Wonderful background and I love the way you circled your rosette with the pearly rope. Your NOEL is beautiful too. Don't you just hate it when you can't put your hands on a tool? I spent 30 minutes last night looking for a Spellbiners snowflake die! Thanks so much for playing and sharing with us at the 12 tags challenge!

Hugs,
Linda
