The Funkie Junkie - Christmas Tags - Tag 2

Hello There!  

Another weekend is drawing to a close and it is back to the grindstone in the morning!  I hope it has been a good weekend for you all and that you have managed to do some crafting over the weekend.  I have managed to have a few hours today which I will share with you during the week.  For now I want to share with you my latest Funkie Junkie tag.  Tag 2.  You can see Linda's tag HERE.  

I made a tag with my TH tag die using cardstock, then swooshed some Picket Fence DS on the mat.  I don't have any brown DS so I popped some Gathered Twigs reinker into a mister and topped it with water, shook it and then sprayed some on my mat and swooshed my tag through it.  I forgot to pop some perfect pearls in the mister so once the tag was dried I sprayed the tag with my Heirloom Gold spray.  Then I stamped the Artistic Post Grist Mill stamp with Archival ink and embossing it with clear powder.  
I then took a Sheena Douglass stamp and inked it with black Archival ink.  I took a Snippet of chipboard and cut a reindeer using a TH die, then embossed it with gold embossing powder before stamping it with my TH script, having inked it with embossing ink to prevent it getting too hot.

Then I took some wooden hearts I had recently bought and using my TH pine stamp I stamped both the top of the tag and hearts.  I took some ribbon and stapled it on the top of the tag and adhered the hearts.  Another bit of ribbon through the top of the tag and hey presto my tag was finished.
