Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas #3

Catching up again and here is my card for the #3 challenge at the Funkie Junkie. I have taken several things as inspiration for my card - stars, using a stencil and the fabulous 3 wise men stamp.
Dimensional stars were created using Tim’s stencil and some texture paste and left to dry. I used the star stencil again with distress ink swiping some frayed burlap on my craft mat, spritzing it with water and dipping the stencil in it and ‘stamping’ onto the card. I also used the blending tool to create frayed burlap stars as well.
The raised stars were covered with treasure gold, but they didn’t show up enough so I spritzed them with watermelon glimmer mist and dried it then painted them  with some gold acrylic paint. I love the pinky brown watery effects that appeared on my card.
I used Tim’s tattered banners strip die, dipping one of the largest ones in some frayed burlap misted with crème de cocoa glimmer mist and edged with walnut stain and finished off with two of the stamps from Mini Holidays 4.
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 haven't added lots of embellishments as the idea is to be able to put some of my handmade cards in the post and of course they need to be flat!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your weekend is going well. It's stopped raining here but the skies are still very grey and heavy and the temperature is definitely going down. I did a bit more Christmas shopping this morning, I'm definitely getting in the mood - are you?
