I am back today with my tag for Linda's The Funkie Junkie Tags of Christmas Week # 7(sponsored by her boutique The Funkie Junkie Boutique). A gorgeous blue and silver shimmery tag is what Linda created. I love the pretty background with the snowflakes and that is what inspired my take on her tag. I started with a scrap of paper I had left over in pink so my color scheme is a little different. While working on this I also added in texture which works for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge of Texture and the Mixed Media World - Anything Goes Challenge.
Linda added a beautiful metallic element to her snowflakes. I unfortunately only had silver and gold so I had to gild my snowflakes with gold. My color scheme became silver, gold and pink.
I then stenciled on the snowflakes using Wendy Vecchi Silver Embossing Paste. Then I had to wait for drying time. I used that time to cut snowflakes using different dies and different mediums. (More of the pink background, Silver foil, multi colored backgrounds.
After everything dried I took out my gold leaf and rubbed it on over the snowflakes on all my different backgrounds.
I used my Memory Box Christmas music stamp and added a hint of music in the background with silver and gold ink.
Along the way I was trying to figure out what I wanted as my focal point can I stamped the Madonna and child.
I also had a half piece of pink splotches that I thought would make a great card background.
