No. 2 of 12 Tags of Christmas



I'm on a roll, I've finished my second of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style  sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

I made mine a card and took inspiration from Linda's gorgeous embossed background, and used a Jenny Bowlin Mini North Star stencil, when the paste and gesso was dry, I used Vintage photo to distress the edges and then Enchanted Gold wax over the stars and around the edges. My Santa from Artistic Outpost, was stamped with Potting soil archival on a Nestabilities oval frame cut from linen card for a shabby look.  I added a few glittery snowflakes and a cut apart embossed sentiment.

I'm on a mission to see if I can get another one finished today.

I am entering this at:
  Double D challenges -  Here Comes Santa
  Make My Monday -   Happy Christmas

Thanks for calling in, have a great day,
Avril xx

What a beautify for week #2. I tried to click to expand it to see the details but was disappointed. It is so gorgeous I really wanted to zoom in! That is one of my all time favorite Santa images. I love the vintate hues and the touches of gold. Some special person is going to love this Christmas card! Thanks so much for sharing it with The 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style.

Hugs,

Linda

I love the subtle gleam you've achieved with your weathered gilding - this works so beautifully with that wonderful AO Father Christmas. A great take on number 2.
