tag no 7 for the funkie junkies 12 tags of christmas 2012

well here I am with another tag for the funkie junkie 12 tags of Christmas,
still behind.
.but catching up...
Linda will be posting her last one this week..
all the details can be found here
and the lovely Linda's shop the funkiejunkie boutique is the sponsor
so Linda's tag no 7 is here
and here is mine:
for this tag I took my inspiration from Linda's background
and the reindeer's.
I have only used this faux kraft suede a couple of times but am amazed by it
so soft and tactile ..amazing Tim technique..
I stamped some snowflakes in clear and covered in sticky embossing powder
and loose rock candy glitter for an icy sparkle
I also covered mine with lots of picket fence to soften the colours,
and edged with walnut stain DI
I added some kraft snowflakes..covered in ..
yes you guessed,,loose rock candy
and little wooden star centres,,
my reindeer's Tim die cuts
from kraft, covered with picket fence
and stamped with little snowflakes..in iced spruce
some metal hearts, crochet lace and a stamped sentiment finish this off
have a fun and inky day!
I am entering this for the following:


  1. Dreamy background colours and I love the hearts around their necks. A great tag again

    Best wishes Chrissie xx

  2. great colour and texture again Trace and I love the hearts around the reindeers necks - fabulous xx
