A Shiny Christmas: Mixed Media Christmas Tag

Shiny Christmas

As I sit in my favorite sunken in spot on the couch, I am watching a episode of Supernatural with the hubby and enjoying the shine of the Christmas lights twinkling through my house. I love the extra glow that the Christmas lights make when they reflect off the silver and gold mercury glass baubles on my tree. Isn’t Christmas the coziest time of the year?

Making Tag #8


Linda over at the Funkie Junkie is almost finished with her 12 Tags of Christmas while I am only on tag #8. You can See Linda’s #8 Tag HERE. I am taking my inspiration from her lovely embossed background,  pastel colors Broken China and Worn Lipstick as well as the metallic silver. Her amazing store, The Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring this challenge.

Making the Tag

Now that I look at it, it needs more foliage. But sometimes you don’t want to go back and re-due it.
So, I painted my background with Spun Sugar and Broken China Distress Paint. I embossed in silver over the embossed background. The stamped image is from Lynne Perrella and the ferns are from I Am Roses. The sentiment is also from a Lynne Perrella stamp set and the background was painted with worn lipstick Distress Paint. I added a bit of lace and Stickles to finish off the tag.

Thank you for stopping. And a Happy Tea Day for those of you joining Elizabeth.

  • I added your link to the T party, Kate. I hope you didn’t mind. I can almost feel the magic of your home with the tree and lights and glow. It’s almost magic.
    Another wonderful tag. I like the embossing and the ferns. I think there is a perfect amount of foliage. Sometimes enough is enough, and I love this and the way you decorated with the foliage.
    Thanks for sharing your tag and your tea with us for T this Tuesday.

  • Your tag is so pretty. i don’t think it needs anything else. I love Supernatural. I wish someone made a Castiel (my favorite character) tree topper with his shadow wings. Have a Happy T Day!

  • Fabulous LP tag – I love the colours here. I hardly ever get out the Spun Sugar but it does have a wonderful vintage look paired with the gold. I’m looking forward to the twinkle of tree lights, but that won’t be for a week or more yet.

  • Stunning piece of work, Kate! Your background is exceptional, the colors absolutely glow. The pinks of the ferns look lovely against the blue.
