More Funkie Junkie Tags

Another two tags completed for Linda' Coughlin's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style which is Sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique, all the details of this challenge can be found here.

Week 10

Apart from the snowflakes, I didn't have any of the other supplies that Linda used, but I loved the snowflake on the wreath with the berry foliage  and the embossed background, all highlighted with silver.  I've used the Holiday Script stencil with embossing paste, covered it with gesso and then inking and spritzing and dabbing and then highlighting the words with a silver wax.  The snowflake and berry sprig were cut from white glitter card and again highlighted with silver wax.

My take on  Week 11  Again I didn't have any of the supplies that Linda used on this tag, but took my inspiration from the central double layer wrapped band.

I did paint my tag background with gesso before applying Tumbled Glass through a snowflake stencil, then I brushed Perfect Pearls over the inked snowflakes and although the gesso was dry, it did seem to give the whole tag a shimmer.  My snowflake uses 3 layers of white and silver glitter paper, the top layer being shaded with the Tumbled Glass, a few crystals and a silver glittered word.  I gave the tag a bit extra body by layering it on a piece of cream pearl card, which isn't white as it looks in the photo!

Well there's only 2 more to go, so I think I might make it,

I love both of these, Avril - the script background for Tag 10 is gorgeous in those icy colours, and I love the delicate, modern "wreath". Your layered snowflake for Tag 11 is simply stunning.
