Today I want to share my 8th entry in Linda Coughlin's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. You can find all the details here. Linda's tag for week 8 had a wonderfully warm homespun feel to it with a Christmas stocking featured. I saw the stocking and for some reason thought about the ice skate die and how I would love to use that in place of a stocking. So, that's what I did! Here is my version of Linda's tag.
I wouldn't call it homespun but I do love those ice skates! I started out by spraying the background with Brushed Pewter Distress Spray through a Memory Box snowflake stencil. I cut the ice skates out of grunge board and painted them with Picket Fence Distress Paint. I used Brushed Pewter on the runners and Black Soot for the heal. After the paint was dry I sprinkled the shoes lightly with Rock Candy Dry Glitter so they would glisten. That doesn't really show in the picture, but it's a cool effect. I "laced" them with bakers twin. The label is from the new TH set of label dies cut from silver card stock. I embossed the edge with crystal embossing powder and stamped it with a Penny Black stamp. The snowflakes were a gift from Linda that she tucked into an order (thanks once again, Linda). I sprayed them with Perfect Pearls Pearl.
Here are some details.
It's a very simple page for my future book but I thought simplicity was my answer to Linda's homespun!
It's hard to believe that we are so close to the finish. I actually have page 9 and 10 finished. I just haven't had time to post about them. Linda is up to 11 and that is really amazing! Next week will be the end of the challenge, which, by the way, is sponsored by Linda's wonderful shop. Stop by and take a look around. The prices are great and the service is even better!
Well, I'm off to continue checking things off my to-do list. I hope you have a wonderful day. Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit with me. I really appreciate it!
