Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 5

Hello There!

What a perfect weekend to sit in your craft rooms and craft.  Yesterday it was pouring with rain and not very warm!  I spent the day in my craft room with my friend having a Christmas Crafting session.  My Christmas Album is now well underway and I may just share some sneak peeks with you shortly!

I want to share with you my number 5 Tag for the Funkie Junkie Challenge sponsored by Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Don't try going back to look for number 4 - I haven't done it yet, though I may today.  I just had an idea for this one and wanted to create it there and then!

So here it is......
I started with a box that had been delivered and I cut a tag using y TH die.  I tore off the top layer and I got my Ferro past and a NBUS Ivy stencil which I bought some time ago.
I heated the Ferro to dry it and also to make it bubble a little for extra texture and once dry I added layers of Paperartsy fresco paints and Pebeo paints in various shades until I was happy with the overall effect.
I brushed over the tag using Treasured Gold waxes.  I just wish you could see the sheen in real life.  I raided my Snippets draw for some papers and I managed to find some that had come from the bottom  of my spray box so they are multcoloured and have lots of shimmer to them!
A stamping of my Santa stamp by Inkadinkadoo with Archival ink and cut with Spellbinders and layered onto a cut piece which I embossed with a NBUS embossing folder.  The poinsettia button was bought in a very expensive shop in Hay on Wye!  
Some scrummy laces and two bows made from Thermomorph - a plastic that you melt in hot water mould into any shape or mould and let cool to harden.  Great stuff and you can put what you don't use back in the pot so no waste.  I painted them with some accrylic paint and brushed some more Treasured Gold wax over the top.  Layered onto some red hessian from Funkie junkie Boutique, some ribbon and I was happy with my tag.  

Thanks for popping over and have a great week y'all.  Don't forget to call by HERE at Funkie Junkie to see all the rules and inspiration pieces.  You still have time to join in before the Big Day!!

As there are Snippets in this I shall be taking it along to the Snippets Playground.

I do like this a lot. Why is it that all the nicest things are in expensive shops?

This looks great. I love reading your tag posts, you are always so creative with them and try new techniques I haven't heard of yet!
You are keeping me current girl!

Hey, good news...I got an Iphone so I think I now have that way to virtual scrap that you talked about. Once I am home from Mum's, i will figure it out and let's give it a try one weekend!

Just perfect Sam! What a great tag and so much detailed work involved.

Sometime before Christmas I should be offering such a similar Santa stamp in the Playground, the face etc. is exactly the same although the background is 'music' and it's by Paper Artsy. LOVE the jolly Santa - exactly as we remember from childhood I think!

Hugs, Di xx
