Happy Christmas

Hello!  I am back with another a tag inspired by the beautiful tag from Linda at The Funkie Junkie Christmas Tags Challenge Week #10. Her challenge is sponsored by her store The Funkie Junkie Boutique

 I followed the design of Linda's tag.  I switched out the background using the pine branch from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate.  I inked it up with the Ranger Distress Ink - Forest Moss spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mister.

I took the beautiful wood frame and embossed it with Stampendous Aged Silver Embossing Enamel to give a silvery finish. 

I misted ribbon with Bronzer mist to give a dark bronze color to the ribbon.  I died the other ribbon with the Ranger Distress Ink - Forest Moss.

I painted the center of the frame with silver paint mixed with white paint.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Snowy Woods plate using black ink.

I stamped the bird from the Birds of a Feather plate using black ink and painted with the same dye ink.
I added a touch of moss under the bird which was misted with the same bronze mist.

Here is the full tag:

There is still time to play along in Linda's tags challenge. She has extended the timeline.  I have a few tags to catch up with so there will be more tags showing up on my blog. :)

Have a lovely day!

  4. Another GORGEOUS tag, just love birds!

  5. Love everything about this, especially the frame!

  6. Is this sensational or what? I am drooling over the entire color palette you have going here - the greens and the gold with a splash of black! I don't think I ever would have thought to group them together for a Christmas piece but they are totally stunning. Totally gorgeous piece of work. This is an inspiration to me!

    TFS and hugs,

  7. Ah, here it is - a huge thank you Sue for this beautiful tag!! I have it hanging on my wall at work so I can enjoy it the year round.
    So nice of you to think of me.
