Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas #5

So where have the last five weeks gone? Linda is on tag #5 and this is my fifth one too, with inspiration taken from the music background and emboss resist that Linda has used. From there on, mine is completely different, but without that spur looking at how Linda made hers I wouldn't have created this. Thanks for the creative nudge every week Linda, I am so enjoying this.

I have used a number of favourite things on here which makes this eligible for Simon Says Stamp and Show your favourites. For instance the DI colours I have used are weathered wood, vintage photo and walnut stain, I just love this colour combination. Also on my hit list are stamps by Tim (we just keep collecting them don't we?), Christmas papers from MME and downloaded vintage music paper. The other thing that is an absolute favourite and that I love making at the moment are my extended tags.

Hels at Sunday Stamper is asking for metal and I think the pin and bells will count here. 
I seem to be using these little bells on most of my tags this year, mind you I do have an abundance of them. 

Sugar Creek Hollow are looking for Sparkle and this can be seen on the sparkly embossing powder I used as well as on some of the paper snowflakes with sparkle pen used in their centres. I also used a Sakura sparkle pen round the edges of the tags.

Other embellishments are from my supplies plus a TH fragment.

Santa was stamped, coloured over with more ink and with a water brush then covered in embossing ink and clear EP to make him shine and pop more.

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.

Did I say that I had been chosen as top pick for a swcond week running at Sugar Creek Hollow, I feel so chuffed and want to thank the girls for all their support.

Today is Friday Eve as I read on someone's blog recently, so have a great end to the week and a lovely weekend.
