.. this challenge is sponsored by the lovely Linda's funkie junkie boutique
to be in with a chance to win one of the fab prizes
, you need to enter all twelve tags,
 saying what from Linda's tag inspired you..
Linda's tag 3 is here
so here is my tag no 3 :
i loved the blue tones if Linda's tag
and was inspired by the colours and the layout..
to create my tag..
i used marbled stains for my background in muted colours,
over stamped with snowflakes and covered in frosty film..
wish you could see the shimmer on this!
i then added wire..
love this
i added a wooden snowflake covered in picket fence cracklepaint
and then when dry coloured with distress inks.
i added die cut snowflakes,
winter ideaology foliage with liquid pearl centres
some ideaology letters
coloured as Linda did with silver paint dabber
and a blossom bucket heart.

hey ..guess what
i made a tag and NO i said...No... rock candy distress loose glitter in sight!!!
i know cannot believe it myself!!

have a fun and inky day..
