The Funkie Junkie's tag challenge number 9

I had a lovely few hours in my craft room at the weekend catching up with the Funkie Junkie's 12 tags of Christmas challenge. You can find out all about the challenge at Linda's blog here and you can see Linda's 9th tag here. If you want to play along you'll have to get your skates on as the tags all have to be complete by 17th December!! The challenge is sponsored by 'The Funkie Junkie Boutique', one of my very favourite shops so its well  worth playing along as there are some fab prizes.

Here's my take on Linda's 9th tag, if you've been following my entries you'll know I'm making some festive bunting and I'm so excited about finishing it off and actually seeing all the pennants together!! 
For this one, I used Maimeri Light Modelling Paste and the triangular comb tool to create a wood grain effect on the pennant, once it was dry I painted with brown emulsion paint and then crackled it with PVA glue and cream emulsion paint. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the lovely swirly flourish at the top is from CaroLines rubber stamps. I've stamped a kraft tag with a Chocolate Baroque sentiment and embossed with gold EP. I don't have any star dies so I used Molly Blooms star stamps to create my stars using grungeboard and gold EP for the little stars at the top of the tag. I used corrugated card from the Funkie Junkie distressed with fired brick distress ink. . The burlap is also from The Funkie Junkie. The buttons, holly leaves and other bits and bobs are from my stash. Here's another pic to show the detail:

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: Christmas
Crazy Amigo Challenge: Hanging objects
Jellypark: stars are shining
Milk Coffee: Christmas Decorations
Paper Play: Christmas is coming

Well its certainly starting to look like Christmas, its sooooo cold and frosty here it almost looks like we've got snow. I hope you're getting on well with all your Christmas preparations, its such a busy time of year isn't it?
Thanks for visiting today
