I Can See the Finish Line....

I'm nowhere near finished with my Christmas shopping, nor have a I planned our menu, nor do I know if everyone has been invited to attend, BUT...I do know that I am getting ever, ever so close to the end of 
Here are 3 more to share.
Bauble #9
Linda's heavenly tag 9 that has inspired me with its fabulous metallic shimmer on the roses, the leaf ensemble and the pearls.

It's difficult to tell, but I've painted onto the ornament with Antique linen and hand-rolled the roses and added silver metallic paint with a light hue of baby blue for the their coloring.  This was one of my favorite ornaments to make!
Bauble #10
Link to Linda's tag 10 and my rendition
The inspiration from Linda's tag was the fabulous soft worn and aged background color, the glittery frame, the holly and the bits of red.  Instead of a sentiment I decided to add a little silhouette of Santa by a tree.  This was also SO much fun to make!  

Bauble #11
This is Linda's tag 11 and my rendition
The inspiration is without a doubt the variation of color that changes from the top of the tag to the bottom.  I've chosen a dark blue ornament and with Distress Inks, I've altered the sky and ground as Linda as done on her tag.  Added a few dots of stickles for the stars in the night sky and red for ornaments on the tree.  The tree is also a favorite and obviously the deer.  I had higher hopes for this ornament, but now that it's on the tree, it's beautiful and I'm happy.

Almost done!  If you'd like to join in the fun, please check out Linda's challenge she is hosting on her blog The Funkie Junkie and the prizes being offered by her store The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Big big hugs to you all and I truly appreciate your visit.
Happy Crafting...

I love the Santa bauble but the roses are gorgeous L2 and hand rolled no less. :) The one with the deer reminded me of my Dad because he loved to hunt in his younger years. I love them all and can't wait for the finale. Hang in there! Hugs L1

You can't fool me - you haven't planned Christmas dinner yet cause you do not want to cook in that beautiful new kitchen.

Margaret said...

Oh man... I knew I shouldn't have picked a favorite yet... Now I have three!
LOVE the gorgeous blue flowers on #9 (who would have guessed I would have picked that one...) and #11 is stunning! The ornament reminds me of a space photo of the earth and the tree and deer complete the whole 'peace on earth' idea. Not sure if that's what you were going for, but it's what you inspired in me!!
