Is it just me or does anyone else hear Pink Floyd playing in their head?
I know this tin is for the Christmas tree and as many times as I tried to force a classic Bing Crosby or Elvis holiday tune into my thoughts, all that kept coming out was "All in all it was just a brick in the...All in all it was all just bricks in the wall." Anywho...
The last tag for Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas is coming to an end. She has posted up her final inspiration tag and so I'm feeling the pressure to finish them up by the 17th of December. I'll be like the little train that could, "I think I can, I think I can, I can ...I can."
Here is Linda's gorgeous Tag 10
I just about flipped. Doesn't this look exactly like a chimney? A glorious conglomeration of goodies to choose from and be inspired by. Without a doubt, the brick, droopy woopy bits of snow, the vintage ornament and the holly drew me in.
So here again is a look at how I interpreted her tag on my Altoids can.
The brick base was created by painting a generous layering of gesso and while still damp, I pressed the brick embossing folder down into the gesso leaving the imprint. Using Distress Ink markers (Thank you SO much Shelby...I love them!) I've colored in the bricks. The snow is packed around the edges of the lid and droopy wooped as well with this magical stuff called Snow-Tex.
A vintage ornament with holly leaves, bakers twine, wooden button and faux berries tops off the brick wall. A little festive gel sticker M for our monogram.
There's still time to play along and if you need more inspiration, there is TONS of it at The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas posts! The lovely prize up for grabs is also from Linda's store
which is sponsoring this challenge.
It's a win win!!
Thank you so much for your very appreciated time.
hugs and happy stamping,
