Vintage tags



I am involved in a tag swap this month and the theme is vintage. I had a great time yesterday making these and got very inky and messy in the process. I have used various Distress Inks to colour the tags and have blended them with a wet baby wipe. The images have all been stamped using the Distress Inks, either directly onto the tag or onto pieces of mountboard. The pieces of mountboard were first coloured with the ink pads and then glued to the tags. I attached some co-ordinating fibres to each tags and them spritzed them with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water to give them a glorious shimmer.If you click on the images you may see the sparkle. I am quite pleased with the final results. The stamps were See D's apart from the large pocket watch which is from The Artistic Stamper.
