Silver and Teal

Hi!  I am playing along with Linda's (The Funkie Junkie) Twelve Tags of Christmas - Week #3.  The challenge she hosts is sponsored by her boutique (The Funkie Junkie Boutique).  Her tag this week uses the cool knit sweater inspired dies from Sizzix.

I didn't have the die that Linda used.  Instead I thought about how I could replicate the look and feel of Linda's tag.  I went through all my stencils looking for ones that would work to emulate Christmas inspired patterns.
I wanted to have my background shimmer similar to Linda's so I pulled out a few Color Shines (Silver and Gold) and on my way to those I spied the pretty teal color.  I was looking at red sprays but none of mine give me the red I wanted so I decided to go the teal and silver route.

I masked off the tag with painters tape so it would lift off after I finished stenciling my stripes of different patterns. I then used scrap cardstock to mask off the other areas and I stenciled with white embossing paste my various patterns.  I did have to have drying time in between depending on the size of the stencil.  After I finished I sprayed the entire surface with the silver shine.

I came back and added in the teal spray in the areas that were stenciled.  This required masking again to keep the blue in the stenciled areas.

I then die cut a deer from a metallic paper and embossed a stamped music image onto the surface.  I finished him off with some antlers from Christmas sprigs purchased last year.
