A Vintage Tag

Hi, this is a very short post as it's scheduled.  Hopefully I'm lying on a sunbed at this moment in time, topping up my tan, on the beautiful island of Crete :-)!

This is a tag I've made using Distress Stains, which I've not used often:

I've used Walnut Stain, Antique Linen and Spun Sugar Distress Stains on the tag, then sprayed it with water, swooshed it about, then dried it with a heat gun.  These are the only three colours I have at the moment, lol!  The image is a transparency from a sheet that someone gave me, so I'm not sure where it's from - I've layered it onto some paper so that it stands out a bit.  Text stamped on the background (Timber Brown Stazon), roughed up the edges then went around them with a little antique gold rub on.  I've used alcohol inks on a small offcut of thick glossy card and stamped "escape" in Timber Brown Stazon.  Some dyed seam binding twisted round with a TH pin through the middle and a few gems attached to the pin.  Some liquid pearls, a heart and a Dream ticket to finish, with some frayed broderie anglaise along the bottom.

Tags, inks, distress stains and seam binding from Craft-Room Online shop.

Hope you like it.
