Tag #8

Hello Everyone,
This is #8 Tag that I am posting up for the Funkie Junkie style 12 Tags of Christmas challenge.

I did make a flower!

But I was not able to use it anywhere on this Tag, my method of creating is very precarious 
to say the least.
I never know what the finished Card/Tag is going to look like, there are no preconceived images in my mind. I sit down and I create, this is what I love, I may have a colour/image/sketch/paper that I pick up and I just go where it takes me. 
It works most of the time...
My problem is I don't always know when to quit!
So to be inspired and then follow through can only be good for me.
I am enjoying this Challenge.

I used a diecut frame as Linda had a gorgeous embellishment on hers at the bottom.
I wanted a vintage look, so I inked up the frame with walnut stain and added some Gold.
My FC image is Inkadinkado. I stamped image twice, and fussy cut the hat, bobble and trim to create dimension.
Die Cut a circle and and some ovals, and layered it up.
Finished off with some Bling.

This is the result.....
It is the weekend already, so I hope you all have a good one and keep safe.

I am so thankful you have visited me today.

Week #6 Tags Challenge (funkie junkie)

 Hello Everyone.
I am into my 6th creation so we are halfway through the Challenge, if you want to join in, there is still plenty of time.  You can complete the 12 tags in any order at any time.  
The inspirational Tag of Linda's was just gorgeous.
I curtailed my urgings to go off on a tangent (I become so excited that I have so many things going on in my head that they sometimes become  jumbled!) I am quite normal I think, for a person who has a creative mind, it is the process that is letting me down; the mind is far too active for my physical abilities, and by the time I do get around to organising the plan I have forgotten half of what I thought of in the first instance!!!!!
Now I am convinced that this happens to many of us..........It does, I know it does, it does doesn't?

Oh well, what will be will be...........

The Tag measures 4ins by 2ins.
BG stamped with Antique linen Distress inks,
I have embossed the music in Egyptian Gold EP.

The technique of triple gold embossing on cupid and the Holly, and then adding red embossing tinsel before drying, creates a thick texture and dimension.
Linda used this technique on her Heart then stamped the 25 while still hot.

You can view her Tag below.
Linda's Inspiration

You just have to have all 12 entered by December 15th if you want to be in the random prize drawing at the end.  And what's the prize?  Your choice of a $25 shop at Linda's Etsy Boutique or one of my pieces of artwork - maybe even one of my Christmas tag triptychs.

The weekend is upon us, and I am so excited as it is semi-finals time for the Rugby World Cup, we have to beat Australia now, and Wales could be our opponents if they beat France, oh it would be great if it was All Black - Wales final.

I am so thankful you have visited me today.
