Shabby vintage tag by Gez

I am delighted to share a tag with you today, here on the Creative blog.. lots of inky goodness went into making this tag, it was sooo much fun!



I started with a plain No.8 Ranger {manila tag} and a couple of {Distress ink} pads used to create the background.. (I must remember to take along the wayy pics.. being a midnight crafter the light is always very poor!)

I stamped {Midge} onto vintage paper using {jet black} Archival ink. Used some scraps of music and patterned paper for the background and embellishments and machine stitched around the edges..

I then added some acrylic paint to help bond the different elements and used one of my most favourite, favourite stamps from {Stampotique Originals}..  {Honeycomb background (8116)} Here I swiped the stamp with a gold  {Ranger Paint Dabber} to add texture, making sure I cleaned the stamp as quickly as possible..

Thank you for calling today and stopping to look at my tag.. wishing everyone a lovely weekend.

Happy creating, Gez
