Week #6 Tags Challenge (funkie junkie)

 Hello Everyone.
I am into my 6th creation so we are halfway through the Challenge, if you want to join in, there is still plenty of time.  You can complete the 12 tags in any order at any time.  
The inspirational Tag of Linda's was just gorgeous.
I curtailed my urgings to go off on a tangent (I become so excited that I have so many things going on in my head that they sometimes become  jumbled!) I am quite normal I think, for a person who has a creative mind, it is the process that is letting me down; the mind is far too active for my physical abilities, and by the time I do get around to organising the plan I have forgotten half of what I thought of in the first instance!!!!!
Now I am convinced that this happens to many of us..........It does, I know it does, it does doesn't?

Oh well, what will be will be...........

The Tag measures 4ins by 2ins.
BG stamped with Antique linen Distress inks,
I have embossed the music in Egyptian Gold EP.

The technique of triple gold embossing on cupid and the Holly, and then adding red embossing tinsel before drying, creates a thick texture and dimension.
Linda used this technique on her Heart then stamped the 25 while still hot.

You can view her Tag below.
Linda's Inspiration

You just have to have all 12 entered by December 15th if you want to be in the random prize drawing at the end.  And what's the prize?  Your choice of a $25 shop at Linda's Etsy Boutique or one of my pieces of artwork - maybe even one of my Christmas tag triptychs.

The weekend is upon us, and I am so excited as it is semi-finals time for the Rugby World Cup, we have to beat Australia now, and Wales could be our opponents if they beat France, oh it would be great if it was All Black - Wales final.

I am so thankful you have visited me today.

Sue, this tag is absolutely stunning! Gosh, I love your work - you are so talented! And yes, it happens to me too, although I'm not half as creative as you - I had a great idea for a card the other day and can't for the life of me remember what it was! *sigh* Hugs! :)

Oh bravo, Sue, this is spectacular! I really love the beautiful background in the Antique Linen and gold EP. And that triple embossed cupid is tremendous. The black accents really make it pop.

Thanks so much for being the first to play along each week. I'd so glad to see you having fun with this - so am I. Looking forward to next week.

Please tell me you're not gonna alter this one? Don't get me wrong, your altered projects always look wonderful, but I would really hate to mess with perfection on this one! LOVE the cherub and the charm and that funky cool yarn"ish" stuff at the top. Those colors really pop.
Dang girl, you got right on this challenge. The muse must be with you. :D
I'm so glad you finished first, I can steal, um "case" ideas from yours now...I LOVE IT!
Have a great weekend and goooooo Rugby World Cup Black Thingy!!!!! I'm so American, it's not even funny..did I say any of that correctly?
Thanks also for your LOL comment on my blog about my BS mishap. A good laugh was needed and you delivered.
Cheers friend,
Lisa xx
