Vintage tag .....

As a mid-way reminder for The Ribbon Girl use any image' challenge, I've made this vintage style tag using Maja Design 'Home for the Holidays' 6x6 paper pad.  The image was die-cut from a tag which was part of the paper pad.

I added a Scrapienec Park Avenue Round Frame, 'Donna' ivory cotton lace tied into a bow, green/red shiny berries, 10mm ivory open roses inked and glittered and a terracotta/rust medium rosebud

I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and leaves made by the very talented Klaudia I just had to have a go myself.  I made the flowers using some flat mulberry pastel flowers, inked, which I dampened, then scrunched, dried and inked.  I inserted various flower stamens in the centres.  The leaves were cut with a Magnolia die and again, I sprayed them with water and scrunched them before inking the edges and adding Stardust Stickles.  

I punched a hole in the top of the tag and threaded through some Oloroso hand wrinkled seam binding

I am going to enter this tag into the 'We Love Vintage Blog Challenge' -  I really enjoyed making this and was worried the challenge would close before I got my tag finished, but I see there is another week to go, yay!!


thanks for visiting my blog and don't forget The Ribbon Girl 'use any image' challenge is still open for another week too :-)
