Welcome to Magpieheaven where I'm slowly making my way through Linda Couglin's wonderfully inspiring '12 Tags of Christmas'. This is an amazing challenge offered by the Funkie Junkie boutique, which also supplies all kinds of great craft materials. There's still time to enter: you have until December 22 and the opportunity to win a great prize, so click HERE for all the information you need. For this tag, I was inspired by Linda's Tag 1, which you can see if you click HERE. This is my third tag, as I'm not working to any particular order. When I first saw Linda's I thought I would never be able to create a tag like that! I loved the effect she created with her stunning contrasts of black and white and the chalkboard technique, but I'm not a black and white person at all. I then turned to my Fresco paints and sought out the darkest blue I have: Baltic Blue. I've not used it very much, as I realized I tend to shy away from very dark colours. However, once I'd covered my tag with a nice smooth coating of this deep, midnight blue I was happy!
