my tag no 10 for the funkie junkies 12 tags 2012

hey there, hope everyone is getting along well with their festive preparations,
 Santa has been working overtime here for our children..
and phew his work is slowly getting done!
thanks to everyone who stops by at this busy time of year!
well there are so many inspirational makes in blogland and things to inspire..
and here is my tag for the funkie junkies 12 tags of Christmas..
I am new to this and have loved every moment!
even if I was a late starter....
the challenge , if you do all 12 has some fab and generous prizes from Linda's wonderful shop
so all the details can be found here,
Linda's inspiration tag no 10 is here..

and here is mine..very different again:
I used a different colour palette, but was inspired by the brickwork and the flowers
I coloured the brickwork, and clear embossed some areas
adding layers of colour
the flowers are snowflakes, stamped in iced spruce
layered with kraft glassine holly leaves covered in...
rock candy distress glitter
with mini kraft flowers
and mini brads
a few wooden stars
and twirls of rusty wire
complete my tag
i am entering my tag for the following:

have a fun and inky day!!


  1. Great tag. Love all the texture and how you use the wire in your creations!
    Hugs Lynn

  2. Looks good the leaves behind the snowflakes! The colours on the tag are beautiful! Hugs, Gerrina

  3. Your embossing on the brick wall has turned out so well Trace, it almost looks real. Love the gorgeous snowflakes and your now trademark rusty (to me anyway) wire. The colours you have used are wonderful. Hugs, Anne x

  4. Awesome, Trace!

    Love that wire and the brick wall background so much! Fab tag!!!

  7. Oh I am in love with this brick wall (well it feels like I talk to them often enough at home!!!:) It looks like the paint has faded in places and some of the bricks have blown. It's perfect. And then you top it off with the most amazing snowflakes. What a brilliant tag Trace. Hugs, Jenny x

  8. Very cool! I love the snowflakes as flowers!

  9. Love that background Trace! Fabulous embossing... Gorgeous snowflakes & stars...Great idea to use the wire... Love it!!! Hugs May x x x

  10. Fantastic tag - LOVE that creamy embossed brickwork, gorgeous holly and fab twisty wire... and you've overtaken me now! Can't somehow get my head round these last ones - and time is running out (not that I'm in the draw as I've been non-wintry, but it's a not-quitting thing, and such fun so far...)

  11. Awesome tag, Trace! Love your color choices and the stunning texture. The wire adds so much interest with the stacked snowflakes... beautiful!

  12. Truly beautiful, Trace! Lovin' that brick wall!

  13. A total bricked beauty here! Love the neutral color use on all your tags...I bet you have a plan for them!

  14. The brick background works really well against the snowflakes and putting leaves behind them looks fantastic!

  15. Fabulous bricked background, love the use of the wire.

  16. Wow, you blew me away with this one, Trace. I LOVE the brick wall done in those wonderful vintage tones. And your snowflakes with the holly leaves are brilliant! Your rusty wire is the perfect finisher. Amazing take on Tag #10. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at the 12 tags challenge. You're almost to the finish line. Can't wait to see what's next!
