12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style - Week 1

Wow,  What a fun way to get into the holiday spirit.  Linda, over at the Funkie Junkie Boutique has launched her 12 Tags of Christmas, 2015.  All the details are on her blog HERE.  She will post a new tag for inspiration every Monday through December 14th.  You make your 'take' on it, and share up on her blog.  How cool is that!

Here is my entry for week 1.  I truly loved every bit of her tag, but the inspiration was definitely the color combination of red, green, gold.  Those colors are definitely my traditional go-to Christmas colors.

I used the Tim Holtz Holly stencil and Dreamweaver Gold Embossing Paste (that has been in my hoard FOREVER).  Once that was dried, I spritzed it all over with Pesto Adirondack color wash.  I gave it all a spray of Perfect Pearls Mist in Heirloom gold for just a bit more shimmer.

The poinsettia is Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia, colored with Adirondack Cranberry color wash and Heirloom Gold.  The greens are Tim Holtz Holiday Greens sprayed with Lettuce Color Wash and more Heirloom Gold (do you guys use this as much as I do?)

I mixed up the holiday greeting with two different Tim Holtz sets, Holiday Words Script and Block.

I hope you enjoyed my first entry.  Please think about playing along - Linda is giving away some great prizes.  Please visit Linda's Boutique, Funkie Junkie Boutique, for great products, prices, and inspiration!

    Welcome to The 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style! I'm delighted to have you playing along this year. I'm sorry it's taken me two weeks to get over to visit your blog - such a busy time of year! Your gold embossed background here is just beautiful. And I LOVE Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls. It gives just the right amount of vintage bling! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely creation!
