I recently discovered a blog named Funky Junky! She has gorgeous mixed media creations, as well as a shop! Apparently, every year she has a challenge that she refers to as
This is Funky Junky Tag #2:
I just loved this tag with the reindeer and the stars! So I thought I would give it a try!
And here is my tag:
I started by using Blue Sapphire Distress Ink for the background. I then added texture with stamps, silver embossed snowflakes, stenciling with fiber paste and some white crackle paint. i was trying to make a nighttime scene, with the snow falling.
I do not own the Tim Holtz reindeer, so I had to freehand sketch it on card stock and then fussy cut it out. Then I triple embossed it with silver embossing powder, which I stamped before it dried. I saw this technique mentioned on the Laurart blog (another newly discovered blog) . Isn't it cool???
The stars were also heat embossed in silver and then sprinkled with Rock Candy glitter. The seam binding was white, which I stained with the Blue Sapphire distress ink.
I am adding this to my Christmas tag collection!
Thanks for stopping by!
