Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas #4

I am still following Linda's 12 tags of Christmas and keeping up, YAY.

This week Linda has given us a rustic, country styled tag and I am taking inspiration from 
1) having a stamped background 
2) I used the enamelled stamping technique which can be found on P.44 of Tim's Book 2 and 
3) I used the tattered pinecone die which I have only just purchased.

I also want to play at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is RUST.

This piece also doubles for Crafty Individuals DT piece as I have used stamp plate CI - 169 and cut out the angel figures.

Apart from the above supplies I added a holly berry frame and some holly berry DP to make another of my extended tags, a little gold bell completes the Christmas touches.

I didn't have the vintage photo distress embossing powder so I mixed tattered rose, aged mahogany and brushed corduroy together and followed Tims recipe on P.45 of Book 1.

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.

I had some lovely good news this week, my 'Fall into Fall' tag was chosen as a winner at Sugar Creek Hollow. How wonderful is that? Thanks girls for your votes of confidence in my work, I so appreciate it.

I hope your weekend is a good one. I am still helping to look after the youngest grandaughters as the eldest had a complication under anaesthetic this week which has set her back weeks. At the moment we don't know when she will be able to come home. She has alot of progress to make before that can happen.

Take care.
