Not often that personal things are on my blog but this post is for someone who I loved dearly xx and whose star now shines brightly ...love you xxx and keep shining bright xx
So here is my tag #2 for Linda's fab 12 tags of Christmas...sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.......and yes I really am only on #2 ! All the details if you want to join in can be found here . Believe me you wont be short of inspiration from Linda's great tags.
Linda's gorgeous tag can be found here and here is mine :
I used similar colours to those that Linda chose and included similar elements with a few extras/ twist of my own. I created my background using brushed corduroy distress ink. and spritzed with perfect pearls in biscotti.
I then over stamped the flourish stamp from reindeer flight set of stamps in brushed corduroy and covered with sticky embossing powder and then rock candy distress glitter.
I also added some music script stamped in coffee archival. I do love this flourish stamp.
For the reindeer I die cut from grey board, covered in antique linen Distress paint and then distress rock candy glitter. the cool thing is this glitter can be coloured with distress ink, so I added some shading around the edges.
When in place I added some wire and a small rusty bell round his neck.
I loved the way Linda had added the stars to dyed cheescloth and added some myself,
also adding some under the reindeers feet
I added some linen ribbon, love how this frays and some dyed seam binding to the top of the tag, love all the textures this creates . I also added a couple of twirls of rusty wire.
I am linking this up for Linda's twelve tags no 2 . here .
keep shining xx
love you x
