Vintage Tag



Well its been a little while since I've blogged. Ive just come back from the Isle of Wight where we had a great week of sunshine! So now that I'm well rested its back to catching up on some craft projects. The theme this week at Lets Ink It Up is to make a tag or bookmark with a vintage twist. For this tag I used Graphic 45 background paper, then stamped Michelle Marsden's Vintage stamps - the mannequin, buttons and vintage text onto card with distress ink, ripped it and distressed the edges. I finished with a piece of broderie anglais.
