Linda's Tag Challenge number 10

Hi there, this week is flying by isn't it? I'm starting to get all excited about Christmas, I can't wait to see Barney our lovely puppy with his presents lol. Anyway before I start rambling on, here's my 10th pennant for my festive bunting, inspired by the fabulous Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas challenge. Do pop over to Linda's blog, you can see her 10th tag here and find out all the challenge deets here. The challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique and there are some amazing prizes so its definitely not to be missed! 

I think this is my favourite tag so far although the photo isn't too good so you'll have to use your imagination a bit lol. I created the brick background using a Crafters Workshop mask and Maimeri Light modelling paste, once that was dry I added some colour with distress inks (Tea Dye and Vintage photo) and finised off with a coat of Maimeri Gloss Medium. The icicle border at the top is cream card, die cut with a Marianne die and liberally dusted with glamour dust. The die cut numbers are coloured with Fired Brick distress ink, attached with gold brads.

The bauble is made using a gorgeous freebie vintage image from Linda's blog (thank you Linda!!), I don't have a bauble die so I stamped a Chocolate Baroque bauble on some card, cut it out and then applied the image using Maimeri gloss medium. I gave the finished bauble a couple of coats of gloss medium and edged it with a gold krylon pen. The flower and foliage were made with Tattered pine cones die, laterd up over a scrap of cheesecloth. The other bits and bobs are from my stash.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Crafty Bloggers: Anything goes
One Stop Craft: Christmas friends
Ribbon girls: Christmas projects
Sugar Creek Hollow: Stencils or masks
Unstampabelles: Christmas no stamps

Well I've been full steam ahead trying to get all my pennants finished and hopefully I'm winning now, I think this one is my favourite so far, I love the vintage image and the brick effect too. Linda's tags have been such an inspiration, I'm thoroughly enjoying playing along

Thanks for popping by today

  1. I love this one - the wall looks so real - the numbers look just as they would IRL on the front of a house and that tatttered pine cone die makes gorgeous flowers - let alone pine cones.
