12 Tags-Funkie Junkie Style # 10

Hello Everyone,
This is Tag #10 inspired by this weeks
Linda's palette relates a cold snowy feel, which is not what we have here in New Zealand; it is officially summer, Christmas is not snowflakes or snow, so for my make I had to create a relative scene using inspiration from the palette, and the texture, then try to warm it up.
I think this is the Bethlehem Star, it was cut on the Cricut, then embossed in Silver and Gold.
The squiggly circle has gesso, paint, and embossing glitter applied.
The Bg.
1st layer- Black cardstock
2nd layer- Gold embossed glitter.
3rd layer-  White cardstock splashes of paint and various stamping in Brown Archival Ink.
Numbers have glossy accents applied after colouring in copics.

Have a great week,

Onion, your Bethlehem star is a beautiful replacement for the snowflake and perfectly fitting! Your colors definitely achieved the warmth from her tag.
I can't believe there's only 2 left to go....
Hugs to you my friend,

This tag has a lovely warm golden glow about it and you definitely achieved your objective! Your star is surely THE star of this show. Love the beautiful gold numbers too. Another terrific piece in place for your banner!

Decadent allure! This is a wonderful design piece. That black and red background really makes everything pop! Your use of the gold is awesome sauce and your 3D star is fantabulous! I bet your Granddaughter will thoroughly enjoy the finished banner.
