The 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style cont.
Tag 7 : ahhh, I wish this was clear. I was inspired by Lindas tag this week, but had to use this little guy :) Frozen colours, text in the background. I used a Tim Holtz snowflake stamp and sticky embossing powder over the text stamp (CTMH, background stamp much loved and old :)) I then used dollar store fine glitter over the stickiness to get the colours. a little boy (Eat Cake Graphics), a sentiment and ribbon makes for a cute tag for someone!
Linda's trees and the ribbon trailing down. I had gingham washi tape sitting on my desk and had visions of a winter wonderland in my head....So out came Artistic Outposts Midwinter stamp set. I took my tag and wet it, swiping it with stormy sky distress stain, mowed lawn and picket fence. I splattered it with water, dried it, stamped it and put the ribbon on. It looked barren so I used a little Dylusions white linen on the roof for texture and snow and added the greeting. Yes, of course from the funkie junkie boutique.
Tag 9: Can you see the shimmer? I used Lindy's Stamp Gang spray for the background and it glimmers and shimmers so lusciously! Enamoured of Linda's background, and not owning any of those supplies, I improvised. I used Dyan Reavely's snowflake stencil and Wendy Vechi's embossing powder, both from The Funkie Junkie. When dry, I sprayed with Rudolph's Nose Red and Bells of Ireland Green. I then took Tim Holtz's pewter paint and dabbed gently over the embossed area. The tree was stamped from a CTMH set and the garland and stockings are from The Funkie Junkie.
Linda's tag this time was beautiful. I wanted that thick, sturdy, luscious border. In mucking out my room, I had found this piece of corrugated board that I had slapped with ?gesso? and forgotten. I cut it to the #10 tag size and made a bigger project this time :) I liked that neutral, soft palette, so I stuck with that theme. This tag is almost all found material and scraps from my desk. I took a scrap of burlap and drizzled glitter and glue on it for sparkle. The greens were leftovers from other projects and were all sprayed with tattered angels glimmer mists. Merry Christmas was embossed in gold from a Tim Holtz mini Seasonals set. The snowflake was from Lindas shop, The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
This tag made me late :( I used Lindas technique of mixing gesso and rock candy crackle and left it to dry. I liked that background but it was really white, so I dabbed it with salty ocean stain and tumbled glass and rubbed it into the cracks. It's pretty, but light. I took Wendy Vechi's embossing paste and spread it across the bottom of the tag and pressed miscellaneous beads into it. I was hoping for a little haberdashery look, but I think I needed to play with it more. I stamped the tims mini blueprint snowman and the Believe (tims mini seasonal) in Staz On ink.
On an aside, it was dried right out and a little rubbing alcohol brought it right back :) ).
The ribbon came with the beads and looked right, so on it went :).
|Tag 12: Last and tiniest :) I like this idea! I wondered how Linda's CardI would pull off Lindas Card with my tiny tags, but here it is.|
