Follow the star.

Well another tag...this time tag #11 for linda's 12 tags....all the details and inspiration can be found here and it is sponsored by the lovely Linda's funkie junkie boutique, a treasure trove of goodies! 
So I based my tag on Linda's tag #11 here but changed the colours and used a different on the edge die which I added at the corner. I was inspired by the general components of Linda's tag. 
so here is Linda's tag #11 and here is mine below:

I started by creating the background for my tag using frayed burlap distress stain from my craft sheet . I edged the tag in walnut stain. I also added some music stamping as Linda had, using frayed burlap. 
I die cut two pine trees using Tim's die and bobbed them onto some frayed burlap distress stain left over from my craft sheet ...but didn't want over all coverage. I then edged with frayed burlap distress ink.
For the reindeer I covered with frayed burlap and then a coat of glue and seal and rock candy loose distress glitter.
For the forest floor I dyed some seam binding using frayed burlap and added a little inked edge and glittered star.
I added some gorgeous idea-ology mirrored stars...and in the corner used the fab new star edge die..lightly inked on the edges and covered in glitter across the corner... I also stamped a few small stars in the background using perfect medium, sticky embossing powder and clear rock candy glitter .
finally to finish off I added some dyed seam binding and some of the new cool linen ribbon, that is absolutely scrummy and the edges fray beautifully!
well nearly there ...I will be linking this up for Linda's 12 tags here .

still in my family bubble but will be back soon xx next week xx
