Funkie Junkie 12 Tags Of Christmas – #5

Yippee and yayyyy, a very dear crafting buddy lent me some of her Christmas crafting goodies. Thank You Sweets.

She took pity on me because my Christmas stash is rubbish so now I can craft on in STYLE!!!

Christmas Tags Funkie Junkie style #5

#1 tag is here with the rules. Linda’s 5th tag and the Funkie Junkie Boutique is here.

Entering this one into the Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge – they want to see some splishy splashy splatter.

Why am I showing the back as well you ask … well, I couldn’t make my mind up which side to add my embellies. Finally went for the other side because the splatter looked so cool.

Wrong!!! Should have used the back side because I ended up covering all my lovely splish splash splatter… ah well can’t get it right all the time!!!

Firstly painted the front and back of my tag with a gorgeous turquoise chalk paint before flicking with some gesso and stamping with a splodge from the Stampin Up set called French Foliage.

Stamped onto vellum before adding gold E P onto one of the stamp sets loaned to me. This set is called Beautiful Season from Stampin Up (now retired).

Linda’s inspiration came into play at this stage as I die cut a frame from the Spellbinders Blossom Five with some corrugated cardboard. then framed the bird image.

Other stamps borrowed and used are Mini Holidays Three.

Footnote: Just want to say that the tag, paint, splodge stamp, vellum, corrugated card, rope and string used are all my own!!!
