Tag #9 for the Funkie Junkie

TAG 9? Oh my gosh only three more left and I am away for 2 weeks. I will have to get my skates on when I get back.

I have taken quite a bit of my inspiration from Linda's #9 tag – a brown tag run through the woodgrain embossing folder, but I dry brushed mine with gesso. I also added dangly stars and red striped stars with buttons on and instead of a large bow I used some red burlap that Linda kindly sent me with an order and some shabby ribbon dyed with walnut stain, I love the richness of the colour. 

The red striped stars reflect the little tag at the top and the poinsettia shape is a wooden piece painted and covered in red stickles.

Linda has another 10% off of her already discounted prices at the moment so it is well worth taking a look before she has to close the shop for a few weeks while she moves house.

Linda's 12 Tags of Christmas is an inspiration challenge and there will be a winner drawn at the end of the 12 weeks for those who have entered each one. There is plenty of time to take part as each tag challenge will remain open until the 17th December, so no excuses if you miss any. The sponsor is The Funkie Junkie Boutique, which is Linda's fantastic on-line store where she stocks lots of fabulous products to produce vintage, shabby chic projects.

Hope your week is going well.

Take care.

Hello Brenda
I think we all loved the pop of Red. This is just beautiful, with oodles of texture which as you know I am very partial too, and your elements of stars and buttons add the extra interest to the eye,I am liking the burlap too.

I like the rustic, folksy appearance to so many tags I am viewing at the moment, including your own stunning tag Brenda.
Wonderfully embellished and ripe with texture.
