12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style




Yes, I'm late, but I'm earlier than last year when I started playing along with the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style,  a weekly challenge sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique
who are offering a prize of $50 and two runner up prizes of $25 to spend in the store.

Each week starting in September,  Linda posts an inspirational tag and this is my take on Week 1.
I was inspired by Linda's use of  the trees in the background and the deer, along with the foliage and sentiment at the top of her tag.

I've used the Tim Holtz Winter Tree Line to create the background and then the splatter stencil with embossing paste, sprinkling white glitter over while still wet.  I've defined my hill and foreground with Diamond Dust.

Well it's a start and a start on the Christmas cards - I'm so late this year!

Hopefully I'll get some time over the weekend to play catch up, Linda's up to week 9, so 8 behind!!

I am going to enter this at:
Moving Along with the Times - Christmas Animals

That's a charming winter scene. I've actually tackled this one - it'll be posted very soon - and I had a lovely time with it. It looks as though you did too.
