The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 7

Hi everyone, hope your Saturday is off to a good start. Another tag to show today for Linda's Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique. I'll have all the rest of the tags today and tomorrow :D, talk about lagging behind with the posting!!

For this tag which is week 7 and there was a lot of inspiration from Linda's tag starting with the ink refresher technique on her background, I've done the same thing, coloured afterwards with distress ink in various greens and then I've stamped with clear embossing ink over the background and highlighted the pine trees with gold perfect pearls. Linda used corrugated card and stamped an image and I've done the same with the pine trees and a watercolour effect with distress ink on the stamp. I've also  used a Tim Holtz deer die cut as Linda did and decorated with pearls, pearl pen dots, tissue tape, glittered snowflakes and metal sentiment.

I have since removed the smudge of red stickles from the metal at the top in case  you're wondering :D!!  Back later with another tag and thanks for going along on this with me :D.

Hello Chris! where was I? already tag 7, and I am still Friday 14th! in Montreal... weird! lol On to your tag that Ilove very much. The green background is incredibly beautiful, so warm, perfect with that lovely Christmas red. I love the light coming from the little forest, cute snowflakes, and love the antique look of the sentiment.
