Well I have made my last Tag for
Challenge: 12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style
13 weeks ago Linda started this Challenge and it has been awe-inspiring to see every ones creations. This is Linda's #12 Tag and also the last in the Challenge, there will be a random draw for a winner on Dec 16th.
The bird cage was my inspiration and the Colour Gold, which imbues so much richness and warmth to any piece of art was the starting point,
I wanted to recreate this effect in my Tag.
My birdcage was stained with fired brick, then embossed with gold ep. A pearl and some bling sits at the top.
The Cherub has had his share of Gold applied too, I added some distress powder for his hair and wings, he looked a little flat until I gave him some. (does the Cherub have hair?)
My diecuts were cut on the cricut using the' fancy frames' cartridge.
The Holly leaves have been fussy-cut and red bling for the berries, and of course my handmade flower made from red CS.
My sentiment was also lying on my desk, I titivated around the edges so it would blend in.
And lastly a TH chain tassel to complete the composition of the piece.
There is a sprinkling of glitter on the top frame but I was not able to pick it up in the photo.
I wanted this LAST Tag of mine to be an acknowledgement of how far I have come in my craft.
My approach to making Cards/Tags today is far different to 12 months ago, and it is all due to the generous and talented people who share their ideas here in this forum that I have to thank.
So Thank you all.
Linda is only one of these special people, if I could inspire just one person through what I am doing today I will be very happy, because to create for me is to achieve fulfilment of my hopes and dreams.
There is a bonus to this blogging that I was not aware of when I started and that is the wonderful virtual friends I have made.
I hope you like this Tag.
I tried to upload all 12 tags that I have made all together, but I am unable to do it!!
Have a great day.
