Funkie Junkie Tag 3

Hi All.

Today I would like to show you my tag #3 for Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas. I am doing quite well keeping up even though it’s not in the right week, but that doesn't matter. If you go take a look at Linda’s example you will see I have taken my inspiration from the colours, using brushed pewter distress stain and the marbled stain technique (see P46 of Tim's Book 2), using metal and stamping on acrylic packaging. The rest is mine lol.

1. Background - marbled stains technique with brushed pewter, picket fence and weathered wood DSs.
2. Metal - alcohol inked with denim blue.

3. Deer - die-cut from reindeer flight in card covered with metal tape. Alcohol inked with denim, sailboat and silver finished with a light cover of white acrylic paint. Finished by edging it with a blue sharpie to make it stand out more.

4. Sentiment - stamped from mini holidays onto acetate packaging, cut out and dabbed with brushed pewter DS underneath.
5. Snowflakes – punched & dabbed with weathered wood DS, ice stickles added over the top.
6. White die-cut dabbed with weathered wood and picket fence DS.
Finished by making it into one of my extended tags using DP from MME.

Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas is an inspiration challenge and there will be a winner drawn at the end of the 12 weeks for those who have entered each one. There is plenty of time to take part as each tag challenge will remain open until the 17th December, so no excuses if you miss any. The sponsor is The Funkie Junkie Boutique, which is Linda's fantastic on-line store where she stocks lots of fabulous products to produce vintage, shabby chic projects.

I hope the world is a happy place for you.
