Challenge: 12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style - Week #8

Hello and welcome to Week #8 of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style.  Today I have a simple tag.  I had a busy week and a weekend out of town which limited the time I had to spend creating Tag #8.  I started with what was basically a waste sheet that was left over from a project last year.  I don't even remember what it was, but I do remember spraying Dylusions Post Box Red on white CS and then adding some Perfect Pearls spray to get a few gold highlights.  Here is a picture of the background layer.

At the time, I thought it was too pretty to toss so it went into my left over box.  I cut it the size of my jumbo manila tag and glued it over the tag.  Next a Tim Holtz gold rub on was applied as a sentiment.    I found this cute vintage card and went old school with the lamp post, one of the first holiday Bigz dies designed by Tim Holtz (now discontinued - but sometimes it's nice to use the oldies too :).  I rubbed a little gesso around the edges with my finger to give it a snowy feel.  The glow in the lamp is Inka Gold rubbed onto a piece of white CS and then a coat of Crackle Accents was applied to give the "glass" a crazed effect.

Out came my Holiday Greens Mini Thinlits die set to cut the holly and the Tiny Tattered Florals die set to create the tiny roses.  I added a couple more gold rub ons and called it a wrap.

Nothing really special about this week's tag - sorry about that.  I do hope you can find something in it to inspire you and I do hope you will play along.  If you are new to this challenge, you can find all the requirements in my Week #1 post.  There is still time to finish all 12 holiday pieces by the deadline of December 19th.

Thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by, left comments and/or played along.  I'm loving seeing the awesome work that you are all contributing!

I don't agree that there's nothing special about this tag, Linda - I love it! I love the snowy and vintage look and feel to this tag - so glad you saved it from last year because the background is beautiful. So inspiring and festive!!
