Pink, Silver and Gold

Good Morning. 
  I am back today with my tag for Linda's The Funkie Junkie Tags of Christmas  Week # 7(sponsored by her boutique The Funkie Junkie Boutique). A gorgeous blue and silver shimmery tag is what Linda created.  I love the pretty background with the snowflakes and that is what inspired my take on her tag. I started with a scrap of paper I had left over in pink so my color scheme is a little different.  While working on this I also added in texture which works for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge of Texture and the Mixed Media World - Anything Goes Challenge.

Linda added a beautiful metallic element to her snowflakes. I unfortunately only had silver and gold so I had to gild my snowflakes with gold.  My color scheme became silver, gold and pink.

I started with multiple pink background scraps. I don't even remember the project but it made a lot of leftovers. :)

I then stenciled on the snowflakes using Wendy Vecchi Silver Embossing Paste.  Then I had to wait for drying time.  I used that time to cut snowflakes using different dies and different mediums. (More of the pink background, Silver foil, multi colored backgrounds.

After everything dried I took out my gold leaf and rubbed it on over the snowflakes on all my different backgrounds.

I used my Memory Box Christmas music stamp and added a hint of music in the background with silver and gold ink.

Along the way I was trying to figure out what I wanted as my focal point can I stamped the Madonna and child. 
 I also had this large snowflake which was too big for my tag so I took my bits and pieces and pulled them together into a card. I love how this turned out.

I also had a half piece of pink splotches that I thought would make a great card background.

 I took that and made a card. 

 My last was a white background with the silver and gold and I added hints of pink but didn't finish the tag yet.  It will go back into the scrap pile for future use. :)

Have a great day!
