Funkie Junkie Challenge - "Scotch It Is!"

New challenge time at the Funkie Junkie blog! This time the theme is "Scotch It Is! Our hostess is Suzanne Czosek and here is what she has to say:

"I googled what July 27th is and it came up as National Scotch Day. Why not be inspired by Scotch? I am going to take great liberties with this and say you can be inspired by Scotch in any way you want to interpret it including and not limited to: tape, plaid, liquor or any way you are inspired by the word Scotch. Make sure to share with us how you were inspired!"

When I hear "scotch" I immediately think of tartans and Scotland so I leaned heavily on the plaid theme!

I sewed together layers of plaid flannel fabric and quilt batting to fit onto a medium size Etcetera Thickboard Tag. I also turned Woodland Santa into a lumberjack with a plaid shirt!

The plaid patterned paper is from a past
Tim Holtz Christmas paper pad.

Mr. Lumberjack needed a forest to work in:

The foreground trees have a texture layer cut using the Simple Plaid die.

I added vintage buttons for interest (and because I love buttons!)

Here are some peeks, work in progress style:

  1. BRILLIANT! The plaid background, shirt and trees are fantastic and I love how you dressed up Santa!

  2. Super-duper SWEET!!!!
    You really knocked this one out of the park; it’s totally making me feel like I’m outside wearing those flannel plaids for tree cutting!! (I’m actually camping right now & the plaid really DOES mix in during the summer evenings in campgrounds- especially in the northern states.)
    Just…. WOW!!!

  3. What a fantastic tag! I love how you turned the woodland Santa into a lumber jack. That plaid shirt is terrific.
