Ballerina Christmas

You will never guess what I am posting today... Ahem... Another tag... I am all caught up with the tags from Linda's The Funkie Junkie Christmas Tags Challenge.  I am saving one of my projects for her tags for Christmas day as it is perfect for that day.  This is  my tag inspired by Linda's  Week #9. Her challenge is sponsored by her store The Funkie Junkie Boutique and I know she has great prices on her products in the store.

Linda's tag has these beautiful shades of blue and soft snowflakes in the background.   It inspired me to create a snowy background tag.   Of course than I had to improvise a little. :)

The background of the tag is a mix of stamped Artistic Outpost snowflakes in versamark which were than heat embossed to create a resist. 

I then dragged gray ad blue dye inks down the surface to give the effect of wood grain.  I wiped off the excess with a tissue to make my snowflakes pop.

I finished with a few spritz of the Dylusions white spray.  I stamped the Artistic Outpost music across the surface in gray ink.

I then looked around for bits to decorate my tag.  I found this beautiful glittery snowflake and decided to stamp the ballerina form the Artistic Outpost Picture Star and make her the focal point of my tag.   I love this image as it reminds me of photos of me and my sister in our first ballet class. (I think the only ballet class for me. :)

I created her outfit from tulle and tinsel.  I added some shimmery flowers and tinsel.  The feathers were added because it needed a little something behind the star. 

The Joyeux Noel had to be applied because the first time I stamped it was crooked!!! After of course everything else was complete. :( 

I have to say this is one of my favorite tags in a while. I might have to make an ornament just like the feather and snowflake with the little ballerina.

Have a wonderful Saturday!
