Tag a la The Funkie Junkie

From The Funkie Junkie
Since I struggled with my Tim Holtz inspired Christmas tags the other day, I needed to get my frustration out of my system. So rather than being inspired by another's work, I decided to start with a blank tag and let my creativity go where it may. My starting point was this beautiful medallion image of two young angels from Magic Moonlight Free Images. I printed it out on my computer, trimmed it out and painted the edges with gold paint to enhance the gold colored printout. Then I glazed the center image with several coats of Crystal Effects and when dry, placed tiny gold rhinestones at each V.

For the background of the tag, I used the retired SU Script BG stamp plus an old music score stamp from Stamp Oasis, both stamped in Creamy Caramel. Then I used two angel stamps embossed in gold. The upper one is an old SU stamp (I believe the set is called Angels) and the other is one I bought off eBay and has no manufacture's markings on it. The edges of the tag were sponged with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink.

The Merry Christmas stamp is from SU's A Cardinal Christmas, stamped in Versamark and Brushed Corduroy and then clear embossed. The tag is a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die, flower and lace by Prima.

I like the results and feel good now that I have cleared all that tag frustration out of my system - LOL!! Hope your Christmas preparations are going well and that you are taking some joy out of this beautiful Advent season. Holiday blessings to all.

Love this tag, Linda! I printed this same image several days ago because I loved it and couldn't figure out what I wanted to do with it! You rocked it! Looks terrific!
