Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge Tag #5

Week 5 of  The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas!.  Please check out Funkie Junkie's  instructions, requirements, and guidelines for the challenge HERE.  Briefly, each week, the Funkie Junkie will provide an inspirational tag from which you take some element and incorporate it into your own tag..  The challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Week 5 tag was inspired by sample tag seen HERE.  I loved the simpleness of the inspiration tag and the medallion with a vintage Santa embossed on it.  I started with a craft tag and using a stencil, sponged Picket Fence dots.  Next, I used a D.O.T.S. stamp for the archway across the top of the card.  This was embossed in Black Sparkly EP.  I cut an oval out of manila and stamped it with music notes using a stamp from Hero Arts.  Another oval from patterned pattern was placed on top of that and a final oval stamped lightly served as the medallion for my vintage Santa.  Santa was embossed in Black Sparkly EP.  The sentiment was cut from a Teresa Collins paper, sponged and distressed.  This tag felt formal to me and I gave it a thin black ribbon and a beaded tassel at the top.

Participating in this challenge has taught me so many NEW ideas and techniques.  The supplies needed for the techniques are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Give the shop a visit - you will be mesmerized by the many products FJ offers.
