I am excited to be joining in on the fun at the Funkie Junkie Blog's 12 Tags of Christmas 2014 challenge. I have been oohing and aahing over Linda Coughlin's creations for some time now, and have finally decided to jump in head first and submit an entry or two (or hopefully, all 12!).
Last night I decided that this 7 Gypsies printer's tray deserved to be used for a special project.
Here is my week one piece, which was heavily influenced by Linda's tag:
All of my project components started as plain white cardstock. I cut my shapes using my Silver Bullet Professional digital die cutter. I added lots of colors of Distress Inks, by stenciling, spraying and applying with a sponge applicator. I also used Distress Paints on the Christmas music tag, and Archival inks for all of the stamping. Although it doesn't show in the photo, I applied some Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles to the oval Noel tag. It gives it just the right amount of vintage sparkle in real life.
Printer's tray with week one added.
This fun challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I had the pleasure of placing an order with Linda earlier this year, and was totally pleased with her personal attention to my order! She carries a wonderful selection of products, including some absolutely adorable tiny jingle bells that she featured on her week one inspiration tag. They are at the top of the very long wish list that is always running in my head.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my project today. I'm looking forward to spending another cozy evening in my craft room, filling up spaces in my tray with more Funkie Junkie style pieces. Stay tuned!
