1st attempt at a vintage tag

 Hello ladies. I have been searching YouTube for some inspiration and I have ran across a few really talented ladies that I really enjoy watching. One is RachO113. She did a beautiful tutorial on a vintage tag and so I thought I would give it a try. I probably shouldn't tell you that I made this from her tutorial as she may see it and think "OMG what was she thinking in making this". LOL. Well Her things are soooo much more beautiful than mine, but with a little work and a little luck that I might be able to get some supplies I hope to some day be able to make mine as beautiful as hers.  Here is her link if you are interested in seeing her tutorial.   glimmer vintage tag tutorial .

Well here is my attempt at a vintage tag.. I don't have hardly any supplies since moving across country and alot of things have been going on in my life but I tried to make due with what I had. The paper I created using different inks and a embossing folder. I then distressed the edges and used gold Rub N Buff lightly over the embossed area of the paper and around the edges. I glued a small white feather behind the image and I dyed the only lace I had in matching colors however the picture didn't pick that up too well. I then used some odds and ends flowers I had from my stash to embellish the corner and finished it off with a small amount of fibers someone had sent me in a RAK a few years ago. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Have a wonderful day.

  5. You did a great job with this tag. Love the vintage look. Using that pretty, whispy fibre was perfect.

  6. Hi Shan,
    thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog.
    I got my lace from

    but it was some time ago so I don't think she has the mixed bag anymore - but there are lots of other goodies in there that might catch your eye. ;-)
