Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas #6
Linda's "Funkie" tag #6 has a variety of features for inspiration; I chose the text paper background, Tim's pine tree die, and a snowflake rosette. When I started, I decided on a monochromatic theme: Weathered Wood Distress and Pewter Metallic Stains. First, I applied the text paper to a #8 tag with ModPodge and then applied both stains. The tree was cut from textured cardstock and dry embossed before getting the same application of stains. It was popped up on a pine tree cut from Grunge paper. The snowflake was cut from the same cardstock and stained the same as the tree. Shiny silver "pearls" accent the top and bottom. The tie started out as white embroidered trim that I cut in half lengthwise and dyed with the two stains.
