12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style



Hello......well, it's official, I've put the 'big girl panties on and bit the bullet' so to speak, and I'm joining in with the Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas....and I'm definitely a late starter as the challenge started in September.  This is the 5th year Linda Coughlin has run the challenge with prizes and vouchers sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.
This is my first time of joining in although I've followed the challenge for the last couple of years, but after visiting Alison last week and reading how she was now challenging herself to complete all 12 tags,  it gave me the push I needed, poor DH has forgotten what I look like!
So, week 1 -


I decided to make my 'tags' as cards and I more or less followed Linda's design, but when I mixed gold paint with embossing paste it was a bit runny and smudged, so back to the drawing board and gold embossed stars along with 3 (table confetti) stars.

Week 2 -


A similar design to Linda's, as I had the Woodland tree and Nordic stencils

Week 3


I kept to the gold/black theme, but heat embossed instead of stenciling.
Well, that's the first three, I'll be back with more soon as I'm on a roll!!!

Tee hee - glad I gave you the final nudge! These three cards are delightful versions of Linda's inspiration. I love your trees layered over the music with the simple gold stars in the sky, and the stencilled firs look wonderful too. Great idea to use the layered snowflake for number three. Looking forward to more (and feeling just a little bit sorry for your abandoned husband!).

Avril, all are amazing! For some reason, the middle one is speaking to me, looks so vintage AND retro at same time. I hope you are able and willing to keep pushing it, I would personally LOVE to see you design for Linda someday, you are such a good fit and she will tempt out more of your grunge side. heehee xoxo
