It's Shabby not Funkie for #10 Tag

It is the last day of the week, and I am looking forward to the weekend as it is Stamp Group tomorrow. I spend most of the time there talking and fluffing around than being productive, but it does not matter because I enjoy the day/evening, catching up with some friends who love to make cards.
So onto Funkie Junkie #10 Challenge and Linda made a really beautiful one this week, I got so excited when I saw it, I had to make myself a cuppa to calm my exuberance.
I had a plethora of ideas flooding my brain that I was feeling quite light-headed for awhile.

I will start with the BG as it is a collage of different scraps of paper....
that you can't see!!!!!!
But trust me I glued them all down and then applied Gesso to merge and soften the edges.
I embossed a snowflake design and painted over with iridescent medium, I stamped a holly design down the bottom of the Tag,  it is the little black bits, and also stuck some mesh  (which again you can't see!) doing well so far am I not!!! Ha.

What you can see is my stitching,  bling flourish,  my seam binding /CS Flower, which is meant to be a Christmas Rose, and a little lace at the very bottom.
The sentiment is Graphic 45 paper.

 There is a new tag each Wednesday until we complete all 12 tags.  You are challenged to find at least one thing on her tag that will inspire you. Well I picked up lots, the mesh, embossing, music paper, seam binding etc etc.

This is Linda's Tag#10

Had a great time making this one, thanks heaps Linda.

                                                 Have a great weekend everyone,


I am so thankful you have visited me today.

You rocked it again this week! Thanks for always being the first to jump in. Your tag is absolutely fabulous! Love the way you collaged the background and then went over it with gesso. Sensational embossing and awesome flower too!

So happy to have you keeping the fun going at the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie style.
