Peace On Earth

Good to be Crafting again xx
Still need to enhance my blog but I am leaving it until I have more time......
And I shall be saving it lots as I do!

Update...
Thrilled to be a top pick at the Mixed Media Challenge at Stamplorations 
and 
Spotlight Artist at City Crafter Challenge...Thank you so very much x

I am so glad that I can join in with Loll's 12 Days of Christmas Event with this tag.
Loll and her friends have provided amazing tags for inspiration 
and there are stunning entries in the gallery.

http://www.stampingwithloll.com/2016/11/day-one-twelve-tags-of-christmas.html
Linky open until the 25th November
I had hope to enter the Stamplorations Tag Event however I had missed it ......
but thank fully it has been extended to the 28th November....

I started by stamping the poinsettia row from Stamplorations 
on the tag and then on a post it note for masking.
I popped a stencil over it and mixed clear embossing paste with gold mica 
to produce the horizontal gold lines.....icicles the wrong way!
I fussy painted the flowers with red and gold paint 
and stamped over it again using the Misti.
Frantage was heat set to add more texture, detail and snow like over the flowers.
The die cut sentiment also from Stamplorations was cut several times.
The tag has been layered and gold and red paint used on the edges.
The Mica and Paints really do look shiny.
So I will be popping my tag over to join there fun challenge 
as there is certainly lots of shiny gold on my tag x
