12 Tags of Christmas 2016 #3

 For Week 3 of the challenge at 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style I drew inspiration from the gold embossing paste on the black background and the sweet black and gold tag.  I didn't have any gold embossing paste so I used a technique from Tim Holtz February Challenge to use Texture Paste and Gold Embossing Powder (while the paste is still wet) and then heat the embossing powder after it has dried.  The tag was created with the Tim Holtz Snowman Blueprint Framelits W/Stamps set...I love the way the frame turned out using Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder.

Below is the inspiration Piece: 

I also enjoyed the challenge this week over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog -  Simon Says: Trio-Tastic to use 3 of something on your project, so for this challenge I used 3 snowflake embellishments.
