Yeay! I am up to number 8 of my 12 Tags of Christmas with The Funkie Junkie. As I have previously mentioned, this Challenge is being sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
As I have done on all previous tags, here is Linda's tag.....
I just love the fun and red on this tag.
I was on a bit of a roll last night and actually made 2 tags though I wanted to ensure this was all adhered securely before I moved it to take it downstairs and take some piccies. So without further ado...
I took some SU Vanilla cardstock and cut it with my TH Tag die. Then using an Inkadinkado stamp and Vermillion Archival Ink (AI) I stamped then clear embossed the Santa image, heat setting it with my heat tool. I then made a mask for the stamped image and swooshed some Bundled Sage Distress Stain (DS) before adding some Vintage Photo and Pine Needles Distress Ink (DI). I then splashed some water over the tag, just cos I like the look! I masked off the the word Believe on TH Silhouettes stamp and inked with black AI. I then stamped the background with Pine Needles DI and Black Soot DI using a mixture of TH and Barn Door Stamps. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI.
After drying with my heat tool I inked the TH Holly leaves with Pine Needles DI and clear embossed it. I cut the Poinsettia using some felt (the snowflakes were already printed on there), using my TH Tattered Florals die. I added some red jute which had been sent to to me in my package from The Funkie Junkie Boutique recently. The snowflake was also in the package and I thought looked it looked perfect on the Poinsettia along with a wooden star button tied with some burlap string.
Some ribbons, bells and another piece of burlap string and some TH Forever Red Perfect Pearls mist.
Thanks for calling by. Hopefully I shall be able to find time to make the other three tags this weekend. Unfortunately our central heating pump has been playing up recently so we bought a new one last weekend and Hubby is fixing it tomorrow, but it involves removing half the bathroom wall of tongue and groove, a lot of swearing and cups of coffee. No doubt the bathroom will need repainting then and all before Christmas!
