Funkie Junkie #10

This was another tag that I had other visions for... gold and white, etc...

This is what I got:

Here is Linda's beautiful tag:

I was inspired by the gold and white.  I loved the idea of gilded cheesecloth (us crafters are so weird-- "gilded cheesecloth..."), but I tried it and did not like the outcome.

  • I prepped the library tag with Aged Bronze, then used Teresa Collins modeling paste over Tim Holtz's honeycomb stencil 
  • Then I wiped some gold Texture-luxe paste over the comb with my finger,  and after it dried,  I wiped out with a baby wipe to settle it in... you know what I mean! I then edged the entire tag with Gathered Twig (Tim's inkpad)
  • The burlap leaves edged with glitter came from JoAnn's (with the berries)
  • The little leaves were punched from scrap paper with an old old old tiny punch
  • I went with red twine because I felt that it really balanced the card well... don't you agree? 
Xoxo, hope ya'll got some crafting in amidst the hectic holiday season...

The 12 Tags of Xmas #10 is the specific challenge, and it is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique ... (but at this point in the challenge, I'm guessing you all know this...)

And pardon the pix... it snowed all weekend and I am such a baby... I dislike the cold and had no strong desire to march out the 20' to my "photo-studio"-- the side of the craft-shack. Btw, shack is all buttoned up-- we spent some time out there with the heater on insulating some gaps. :)


  1. Love that shimmer and the honeycomb overlay! Gorgeous, darling!

  2. Wow! Fab combo of textures and I like the the combo of rustic burlap with elegant gold.

  3. This is fantastic! I adore the gold background with the honeycomb texture and those giant burlap petals are wonderful. Your pops of red for the tie and the berries are the perfect finishers! Another super take on my tag.
