Well I made it - Last 2

Yes, I've made it, the last 2 tags inspired by Linda Coughlin's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style which is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique

This is my take on Week 5

I didn't have the log background stamp that Linda used, but loved the idea of the logs, so I've used a TH Woodgrain stencil with Vintage Photo DI and then blended VP over the tag.  I've used a TH Santa and offset and added clear embossed holly, although I kept my berries red.  I added the label from the Correspondence set.

Last but not Least - Week 9


Week 9's inspiration came from the little winter scene Linda created and the Chipped Sapphire sky.  I had masked off the bottom of the tag and used CS ink as I don't have the paint, I used Chunky White embossing instead of splattering with paint. For my tree I added Moon Glow embossing powders Silver Moon and Midnight Teal to try and create Linda's enamelled look, the deer was lightly inked with Versamark and I lightly sprinkled the copper embossing powder, again trying to create an enamelled look.  The greeting was die cut with silver glitter card.

So pleased I made it, I know there's another few days left to link up but I know I'll not have much time for crafting, so today was really deadline day.

Thanks for calling in, and I'll do some catching up now.

Two gorgeous tags, Avril! You are so clever to use the wood grain embossing folder to emulate Linda's wood slice background! Wonderful Santa image you've used! And tag 2 just takes my breath away!
