Back again with tag #3 for the 12 Tags of Christmas over at The Funkie Junkie! This challenge is sponsored by Linda from The Funkie Junkie Boutique :)
This time Linda's tag used the marbled stain background a-la Tim Holtz again - this time with blue & pewter. I loved how the background turned out so I wanted to keep the tag simple so I left some space open but I also really liked her bit of wire fencing, so I created my own piece using crack repair fabric, silver paint and plenty of Ranger's Dry Glitter.
The poinsettia's (from Stamper's Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection - Christmas Time) were stamped using a watercolor technique - I colored the stamp itself with distress markers, misted the stamp with water and stamped onto paper. I love the look I get with this technique! Once dry, I fussy cut the image and coated it with distress paint in clear rock candy.
The lace bow is a vintage scrap from my stash. The Merry Christmas stamp along the side is also from the Christmas Time set from Stamper's Anonymous.
