Hello friends and a warm welcome to my new followers. I'm back today with Tag #12 of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style. It's been a fun run for the last 12 weeks. I have really enjoyed playing in the tag challenge and I hope you have too. I'm so thrilled with all the new artists we have playing with us this year! But all things must end, and this is our final week of the tag challenge. I'm offering my Tag #12 for your inspiration this week. To be eligible for the prize drawings at the end, you must have all 12 tags linked up by midnight Eastern Time on December 17th. You can find a link to each week's post at the top of the right sidebar. There will be $100 in gift certificates randomly given out as follows - $50 to the grand prize winner and $25 each to two runners up. If you are a winner, sadly, you will have to wait to use your gift certificate until I reopen the boutique in January. But the good news is that I will have a 10% re-opening sale so you will be able to get more for your gift certificate at that time!
It's so annoying when photos don't do a piece of artwork justice. I love the way this tag came out, but I just don't think the photos reflect how pretty it is. I spent over an hour photographing and editing photos, but still didn't get a great outcome.
This is a two layer tag. The bottom layer is the jumbo manila tag itself which has been gold embossed with the Fabulous Flourishes stamp and sponged with a combination of Festive Berries and Barn Door distress inks. The top layer is actually a smaller tag, gold embossed using the Book Covers stamp. The Happy Holidays stamp is from the Mini Holidays 3 set. The Carved Ornaments die was used for the ornament which was embossed with the Snow Flurries texture fade and gold embossed with Judi-Kins Egyptian Gold EP. The crinoline poinsettia was made with the Tattered Florals die. And that wraps up Tag #12.
I hope you have had as much fun as I had playing in this challenge this year, and that it has helped you make some of your cards and tags for Christmas. Thank you to everyone who as visited and a special thanks to those who have played along!
