my tag no 12 for funkie junkies 12 tags of 2012

well here I am ,
I have done it..all 12 tags
 with tag no 12 of the 12 tags 2012,all the inspiration and details can be found here,
 courtesy of the lovely Linda.. boy have I had fun doing these..
and may have been late starting but nearly there..and have LOVED it!!!
so all the details are here,
Linda's fab tag no 12 can be found here
and if you make all twelve there are some fab prizes sponsored by
 Linda's great online shop the funkie junkie boutique..
so here is mine:
very  very different to Linda's but definitely inspired by her tag
I was inspired by the flower and the wonderful embossed background..

so I embossed white snowflakes ..
and the inked in areas to create a different background...don't do this often and
left some tag uninked!!! and found I liked it!!!
for all those concerned about my little...erm addiction ...
thanks to Anne and butterfly for alerting me to this!!
to loose rock candy glitter
I haven't used a smidge...
and I am not shaking!!!

I added my new fav Tim flourish to the corners,
a fabric flower..crinoline..
some idea-ology
and voila!
right I am away to sprinkle some rock candy glitter onto something!!!
oh it is fab
have I said..so frosty and non glittery...love it!!!

I am so sad that these are finished but huge thanks to Linda for the inspiration
I have had so much creative fun making these!!!

have a fun and inky day!
and thanks to everyone who has stopped by and left comments at such a busy time!!
I appreciate them all so much!

I am entering this for  the funkie junkies twelve tags of Christmas @ http://thefunkiejunkie.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/challenge-12-tags-of-christmas-funkie.html


  1. As you say, totally different to Linda's but I can see the influences. Love the subtle flavour of this. No ink in parts or glitter?!!! I have a feeling the next projects will be covered in it to help you recover. It definitely worked here though. Well done for getting them all finished. Hugs, Jenny x

  2. Well done on finishing the tags. This one is so dreamy and the flower looks amazing.

    Love Chrissie xx
