Christmas Tag Week #1 2015

Happy Sunday to all of you and hope you have had or are having a great weekend! This year I sure hope to play each of Linda's  "12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style" and so I start with Week One! Most of the supplies I used for my tag can be found at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, which is my favorite shopping spot for all my crafty addictions!
I took inspiration from Linda's tag using lots of gold, stenciling and poinsettias! The tag background was sprayed in reds and green using leftovers in the misting tool and then I flicked on some water drops and dried with the heat tool. Using Tim's Holiday Knit Stencil, I gold embossed with VersaMark and gold embossing powder. The poinsettias were cut from the Tattered Poinsettia and movers and shapers, inked in Mowed Lawn and Festive Berries layered up and finished off with a Faceted Acrylic Snowflake which I colored using Watermelon Alcohol Ink.
Shaded the edges with Ground Espresso and distressed and a Merry Christmas from Tim's Mini Holidays!
Thank you for visiting today!

Woohoo, girlfriend! I'm SOOOO delighted to have you playing along with my little challenge again this year. Your tag is scrumptious! You picked one of my favorite stencils to use as your background and your colors are calling my name! Your poinsettias are perfect too. What a great way to dive into this year's challenge!

Gosh Terry !!!! I can't believe that its time for Linda's 12 tags and I do hope to play along too. Saw this tag on FB and I just love it. The background and poinsettia are just stunning as is the sentiment. One more sleep in CA until we return home. We have had a great time and it was wonderful to meet up with you xx
Thank you so much for everything and for both your own and Steve's immense kindness to Ronnie and I xx

Huge hugs and best wishes

Terry...you go girl! This Christmas tag is awesome! I can't believe that it's already getting to be that time of year again! I, like Linda, love that stencil you used in the background. It is so perfect for that homespun vintage Christmas feeling. Yet you kept the tag fairly simple so as to really let that background shine. Love your poinsettia, too! Oh...and THANK YOU so much for your sweet comment!!

What a beautiful Christmas tag! It's great to see you use the sweater stencil--so inspiring! I have it, and have used it only once. This makes me want to get it out and dust it off. Beautiful vintage colors and a lovely poinsettia! This really puts me in the Christmas mood! Hugs!

What a treat... there's a glow of vintage holiday nostalgia here which is really heart-warming. Terrific take on Linda's first tag - I'll be along to play at some point, but you know me and Christmas crafting - I can't get my head round it until at least November usually!

This is killer! I just love the rustic red on your background and the simplicity of the sentiment against it. Perfect tag and such a great tribute to Linda's lovely inspiration. :)

Jane said...

Your tag is beautiful. I used a similar background on one of my later tags. I love that holiday knit stencil!
