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!

  1. This is perfect, Barb! Your tree is delightful and I love the way you did the red dots. Beautiful red stamped borders too. So great to have you back playing with me for Week #2 of the challenge!
