Hello again! For my second post today, I have my version of Week 3 of Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. I am one determined person to get caught up and get my cards in the mail before the New Year! Linda's challenge has inspired me, and I have a bee in my bonnet!
The photo below is Linda's version. You can tell I was inspired by her use of red with the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit Thinlits die, as well as her Kaisercraft Lasercut wooden embellishments and Wendy Vecchi's Holly and Berries, all sold at her shop The Funkie Junkie Boutique. She is generously donating several huge gift vouchers to her store as prizes for this four month long challenge (challenge sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique).
In the meantime, I die cut my snowflake and deer (Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers) out of a wood slat from a cigar box. I have a pile of these, and they come in handy from time to time. Unfortunately, my first attempts failed, as the wood broke apart running it through my Big Kick. I persevered and was rewarded with one deer intact. I got smart and inked him while he was still stuck in the die. The snowflake is cut from card I colored to look like the same wood. I also cut the same out of black card for a shadow effect and to lend some support to the fragile wood. (I'm kicking myself for passing up the Kaisercraft goodies at Linda's shop!) Like Linda, I added Stickles to the deer and snowflake, mine in platinum. My berries are gemstones from my stash.
Even though I don't have the Wendy Vecchi Holly and Berries, I followed Linda's inspiration and die cut my own from card scraps left from my trees in my last entry. I stamped them in Evergreen Bough with a Boundless Flight image by Tim Holtz and edged them with Black Soot Distress marker. Deer, holly, and snowflake are popped up with Ranger black foam tape I'm stocked up with from Linda's shop. My sentiment, also from Linda's well appointed shop, is Tim's Small Talk stickers--Occasions.
One more off the list!
