Winter Snowflakes 12 Days of Christmas Tag

tag 1
 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!
tag 3
 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!
tag 4
 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.
tag 5
 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!  To see all of my 12 Tags of Christmas click HERE.
