Tag You're It!

Hello folks, I hope you all had a good weekend and managed to fit in some crafting which is more than I did as we had family stuff going on again with birthday celebrations and so on.
It's time for a new challenge at Make My Monday and this week the theme is Tags. I had to cheat a bit with my inspiration as having had no time for crafting, I'm sharing something I made a few years back that I really like and I know I enjoyed creating at the time.


I made my own tag as I wanted an arch shape and I covered it with some decorated paper from my experimental box. It was sprayed deep red and stamped with a square design in black then some doodling with a gold leaf pen was added.
The Gibson girl was stamped with Memories Artprint Brown ink, coloured with pencils and cut out. I then cut a heart shape from card and covered it with pressed pansies.
The tag was assembled with ribbon and a butterfly from my vintage illustration book and the text was stamped with Hero Arts alphabet stamps and inked up with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks.
The final touch was a pressed daisy in the lady's hair.

Have a great day.
Fliss xx
