12 Tags of Christmas 2016 #2
This is the second 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style, Week 2. As usual, I love all of the elements of Linda Coughlin's tag, but don't have all of the fun tools at hand so I improvised. This is her inspiration piece for week 2:
I love the effect of the brushed on gesso, and the inked stencil, the tiny snowflakes, and the red dots. The deer is adorable...mine appeared to be in flight so I attached it to the die cut 'Noel'.
I had a really hard time getting started because I couldn't figure out whether to use the Jumbo Manila Tag or the #8 Manila Craft Tag...then I read on one of Linda's posts how she attaches the manila tag to chipboard to give it more stability...well I had some chipboard tags which were in between the two sizes of manila tags so I trimmed down the Jumbo Manila Tag to fit the sturdy chipboard tag, which is 3 1/2 x 7...worked out perfectly!
Thanks, Linda for the great inspiration!
