Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas #2

Still catching up but here is my card version of Linda’s second tag for this year. I have not quite cased her tag but it is very similar in colours and other elements she has used so do pop over HERE to see her inspiration and to join in the fun.
I didn’t have frayed burlap distress paint so I used brushed corduroy with the picket fence and perfect pearls heirloom gold. I used a different card and found it soaked up the water very quickly before marbling very well.  However after I had prepared everything for the card I ironed the cardstock to straighten it, which worked perfectly, but it took up some of the embossing powder fragments that were still left on the heat mat and made it more speckly.
I made the stars the same way as Linda did but added rock candy stickles over the top, you can’t really see the glittery effect they have which is a shame.
I always think this deer is such a grand fellow with his nose in the air and he has a scarf to keep him warm on cold, starry nights. This was made with muslin soaked in antique linen distress paint.
Stamps are by Tim Holtz as are the die cut stars and deer.

Linda has the full details of this challenge on her tag 1 post but in essence make a tag or card etc. and take something as inspiration from Linda’s tag for your own make, link this up to her post and enter all 12 challenges by December 22nd to be eligible for the draw. Linda is very generous with her prizes so you could win a $50 or $25 voucher to her on-line store ‘The Funkie Junkie Boutique’ and even get 10% discount over January 2014.
I made two of these cards so my card box is starting to fill up now.

Enjoy your day and creative time.
