Tag 8 for Funkie Junkie and Tim's November tag.

This is tag No: 8 for Linda’s 12 tags of Christmas and I have combined this with Tim’s November tag as well. I am still making my extended tags and love the extra length they give me.

My inspiration has come from both Linda and Tim. I have used the techniques Tim has shown and used Mario Junior’s fabulous toy soldier blueprint stamp. From Linda my inspiration has come from the fact that she also used part of Tim’s tag herself for inspiration, but I also loved the use of the red hessian and flower.

These photos were taken at different times of the day which is why they look different colours. You can see the tag before and after embellishing.

The layers of ink for this technique are fabulous and I love the emboss resist.

I hung little gold bells onto a swivel clasp, attached an eyelet and tied it with some ribbon.

The Poinsettia is a Crealies die, cut with distressed coredinations card.

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 am catching up again with the tags for the challenge and loving making them. Thanks for looking and all your lovely comments on my work.

Take care.
