EEEK! I've made it to tag 11 from the 12 Tags of Christmas with the Funkie Junkie! I couldn't be happier that I started these tags in October and have kept to it! Today's tag was greatly inspired by Linda's tag, but with a more vintage grungy style. Linda's tag is a gem this week! My inspiration came from this new Cuttle Bug die that I ordered and when it arrived it was HUGE!!! I thought I would never find a way to use it, but decided to use it in place of the stencil paste from Linda's version.
I did spackle some paste onto my tag that was covered in this cool old paper. Next I glued the die down with matte medium. Then wen I inked it with Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks, it puddled in the strangest places, but I loved the effect!
I decided to add some embossing powder along the edges for some shimmer. Then I simply die cut some dyed snowflakes and glued them on. This tag was a breeze!
I added pearls to the snowflakes and this little flurry of pearls to create the snow storm effect. :) The sticker is by Cosmo Cricket and is mounted on some inky, distressed paper.
I just love the dimension this created and will definitely be using my dies in this new way now! I hope so much to make it to tag 12! I really love it! Please head right over to The Funkie Junkie Boutique and show Linda some shopping love for hostessing this fabulous challenge. There is a super sale going on! Thanks Linda!
