Over at the Paper Artsy Blog the subject is Pearlescent. I love the gentle pearl sheen that was highlighted, especially the pearlized paper used in the wedding card in the introduction post. I used this as a basis to make the background of a halloween tag using pearlized paste through a stencil. I loved the effect on my spooky tag (however...it is very difficult to capture on a photo).

Although my house is all decked out for Halloween. and we have just had one of the hottest weeks in October on record, my thoughts turn to Christmas. I have been following Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style for several years but I have never played along. This year I am determined to complete all 12, but have chosen to participate with cards instead of tags!
I am stating with Week #3 of The 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Linda has gone all out with RED for a very festive eye catching tag. I loved the red inked through Tim Holtz's Peppermint stencil and this was the source of inspiration for my card. I used red/kraft striped paper in my stash that I placed on the diagonal for the base of my card. The red didn't stop there...I cut out a poinsettia using Tim Holtz's Tattered Poinsettia die and made it pop with Festive Berries Distress Glitter.
I was also inspired by PaperArtsy's 2017 Topic 14: Glitter and I would like enter my card in this challenge as well. So many fun ways to use glitter!
Thanks for stopping by :) Kim
