my take on the funkie junkies tags no 2...

well another day...(and a wet one at that!! yuck...)
.. another post..
as i have the funkie junkies fab tags to catch up on..
Linda's wonderful tag inspiration can be found here..
and if you manage to join in all twelve there are some great prizes
 sponsored by Linda's wonderful store... the funkie junkie boutique..
so here is my tag 2
i took my inspiration from the riveted patchwork background..
i adore this technique.
. but went my own way on the colours and embellishments..
i used blues and the fab iced spruce DI...i adore this colour..
the snowflakes were die cut from a Tim die...
edged with iced spruce and stamped with music script in iced spruce..
the letters ..were chipboard..
coloured with my fab new distress stain..iced spruce..
did i say i love this colour?!
i then coated with glue and seal
and yes ...you have guessed sprinkled with lose rock candy distress stickles..
i added some metal idea-ology to the centres of the snowflakes..
a piece of rosette die inked in ...
iced spruce..along the edge to create a border
and finally some new idea-ology tinsel to the top.
well two down...
make sure you pop across here to see Linda's fab inspiration..
have a fun and inky day!
