12 Tags Christmas Funkie Junkie Style

Week 3 12 Tags for Christmas the Funkie Junkie style

I have been meaning to upload this for few days just been waiting for the right light to take the piccys.Im afraid still not come out as well as i had liked

The tag looks so much better in the flesh so to say!

Anyways i have made this after visiting Linda's blog the Funkie Junkie.

I noticed that she was doing 12 tags of christmas .After seeing many blogs showing crimbo items i started to feel guilty at not doing anything .Usually my mojo is in the Crimbo mode by now ,and half way to finishing all my bits and pieces.

Getting back to Linda's blog and worth taking a peek you won't be disappointed .I was amazed at her tags for christmas .Yes ive made tags before but always using traditional colours .Reds,Greens,Silver ect.So this inspired me to join in and try and use vintage or neutral colours .I got my inspiration for this tag from the first tag i noticed which was week 3.Yes i know got bit catching up to do but i have until December 15th to complete all tags.Pop by join in all deets are HERE

Back to my tag well i have used Tim Holtz tag die and Rossette die and covered and cut the rossette out of Bo-bunny's lush papers" ET Cretera "They arent Christmas D/Papers but just as lush my fav's at the mom if you hadnt noticed!!

For the tag and my inspiration i found they where just what the dr ordered!

I then Distressed the tag with Vintage photo & Antique line.I then stamped randomly on the tag a Merry Christmas postmark which is from a christmas vintage set ive had for many years not used as you do!
I then coated Tim Holtz grunge numbers with fresco paint antique linen the once dried rubbed Inka Gold paste ontop.
The image is from a set that i purchased from the lovely June at Dezinaworld.

Which has some fantastic images and collage sheets at very reasonable prices well worth alook.

I coated in Distress Crackle Paint and left to dry then rubbed and added vintage photo D/Inks over th top.The decorative pin which ive added to the rosette i made myself and the ribbon with beads is some i had left over from another project.I used Martha Stewart fern punch in gold shinny card to add to the rossette.I then finished off by spraying all over the tag with tattered angel glimmer mist in Pearl. I am also entering this into the challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow:The theme this week is:Vintage Children

I am pleased with the way this tag has turned out and just adore the neutral colours rather than traditional colours expected at christmas.This is all thanks to the amazing blog the

Funkie Junkie.
I now have to catch up and make some more tags .My christmas mode is sorta getting thanks to Linda and her 12 tags the funkie Junkie style.

have good nite love n hugs

Oh my, this is absolutely fabulous, Jude! Amazing job with the vintage neutral colors. I too always use the traditional red/green Christmas colors and I am having such a wonderful time making tags this year in the neutrals. It is definitely stretching my creativity.

I really love the way you used the crackle paint on your angel and your background is totally delicious! Lovely embellishments too. I'm so happy to have you aboard for this challenge. Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for the next one!

Thanks too for the lovely write up!
