Whew! Funky Junkie Tag #12!

For Tag# 12, of Linda's Challenge, sponsored by her wonderful Funkie Junkie Boutique, I was inspired by her use of Kraft as a background.... and I am shamelessly stealing the look from Diana's fabulous Christmas tags!  Mine is not nearly as lovely as hers, but it is definitely something I will be working on in the future as I love this look
I am working out of a temporary mini-studio I packed at the last minute, but I also have some basic supplies like a duplicate set of mini Distress Inks, small bottle each of matte medium and Glossy Accents, a small glue gun, and a craft sheet, as I am ferrying these items to my new vacation home.  The house is not quite ready, but I have a storage locker in town, as I have already sent my entire quilting studio out.

I did some prep work at home a few nights putting on some texture paste through the Tim Holtz flourish stencil.  This was then splattered with Picket Fence Distress Paint, using the splatter brush....

I had also brought some die cuts from white cardstock using the Festive Greens and Tattered Flowers, both tiny and regular size..

So I made up a couple of medium roses, and three little ones....
and arranged with pieces of a Memory Box wreath.

And here it is, with some detail shots......just one more tag (the plaid one!)

Thank you so much for visiting, and if you've time, I'd love to hear from you!  Happy Holidays!  xxx Lynn

    Quite beautiful!

  3. As Lynne has already said, kraft and white is a perfect combination. Your tag is quite simply gorgeous! Hugs, Anne xx

  4. That is BEAUTIFUL. I went to Diana's blog (good thing I was sitting down) her stuff is gorgeous too. What really stole my heart on this was the splatters, of all things, that looks so wintry like that. Congrats on reaching the finish line!
    Big hugs,

  5. Ooh, one of my favourite colour palettes and you've done a fab job with it - I love your splatters and I'm also very impressed that you made those roses, they are perfectly beautiful. A lovely, lovely tag.

  6. This tag is absolutely beautiful! I will definitely trying this out in my craft room this week. I love the kraft and white together. So subtle, but stunning!

  10. I'm just popping back to say thank you so much for mentioning me in your blog post - I read it when I last visited but didn't make the connection that you meant me (I should have made time to follow the link!), it's only since a couple of people have visited and mentioned coming over from your blog that the penny dropped! It's very kind of you - thank you again!

  11. Absolutely gorgeous, Lynn. Love the combination of the kraft and white and the shabby feel to this. Love those splatters!

    So happy you played along with me for my annual 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style, Lynn. Congratulations on making it to the finish line. I hope you will come back and play along with me again next year!

    Wishing you and your family all the best in 2016!
