Well, it's another tag post today. I'm trying to catch up with Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. I have the tags made but I've been slow to post them. But, here is tag number 9! You can see Linda's here. What I loved about Linda's was the glittered foliage. I also liked the embossed snowflakes in the background. So, here is my inspired version.
I used a size 10 tag and Iced Spruce and Pumice Stone Distress Stain to lightly coat the background. I left it streaky deliberately. I couldn't get a good picture of the color here but it's a greenish gray, very silvery looking. For the background I used clear embossing ink to stamp an elaborate Inkadinkadoo snowflake stamp. I used silver embossing powder to emboss them. Then I ran Pewter DS along the edges of the tag. I used the Baroque TH die to cut a piece of snowflake patterned cardstock and glued it down to the tag. Using manila cardstock I cut foliage from the TH Festive Foliage die, lightly coated it with glossy accents and sprinkled it with Pumice Stone DG. Silver cardstock became pine cones using the pinecone die. I had never made these little pine cones, but my daughter had and they are just so cute! So, I decided to use them on this tag. I touched some of the edges with some rock candy glitter. A length of seam binding colored with Iced Spruce and Pumice Stone DS is tied around the middle of the tag. I made a cluster of loops out of silver tinsel and the foliage and pinecones. Using the silver cardstock I stamped the "Winter Wonderland" in white and embossed it with iridescent embossing powder. The snowflake at the top was a TH Ideology piece that I dabbed with Picket Fence and sprinkled it with rock candy glitter. Here are some details.
I'm really happy that you joined me today. Thank you. I hope you are enjoying this busy time of year. I'll be back soon!
