So the sun has finally come out here in Michigan for me to take some pictures of my latest participation tags.
I am participating in Linda Coughlin’s (owner of Funkie Junkie, my favorite online store) challenge ’12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Boutique Style’. You can find details here. Basically, Linda creates a tag each week and you create whatever inspires you from the tag, then you share on her blog. Easy~peasy. I have some completed already but they reside in one post that you can view here. That post has #2,#3,#4,#6 & #7. Be sure to look at #8 tag and #5 in their individual posts also.
So, I started out with inspiration from Linda’s tag #10 (find it here)
I followed her background once again using gesso, tinsel stencil and star print stamp only using Distress Oxide Ink in cracked pistachio. It felt a bit ‘cold and snowy’ so I recalled wanting to try a shaker piece and finally use the snowman from THSA Tattered Christmas CMS318. I followed Kath Stewart’s construction of the shaker card (can find it on allthatglitters blog).
For the ribbon I used THD spray in cracked pistachio, then used archival ink in Ruby (Dina Wakley signature color) with stamp from Bitty Grunge CMS089.
I love shaking it up because you never know where the glitz is going to land, lol.
So, once again, completely different from Linda’s inspirational piece but I guess that is what makes me, me.
Thank you for following along in this really fun and inspirational challenge. There are a few more weeks left and look forward to sharing those, also 😉
