Vintage Tag


While in the UK last week I bought five new Penny Black Stamps, one of which is the large music background which I have been drooling over for some time now …. had to buy in bulk this time because not sure when I will be next in the UK.

Irene and I had a fun three days of crafting and we stamped the PB Poppy Poem onto a tag, coloured in with markers, then masked off and over stamped with the music, inked and distressed the edges.

Had a little blog hop …. don’t have time when home so was having withdrawal symptoms …. and saw The Shabby Tea Room has a challenge for tags so revamped my tag and added it to a larger tag, again used the music and poppy but this time coloured with distress inks, topped off the poppy and torn stamp with glossy accents. Made a rose with the salvage edge of a piece of material and inked with TH Spun Sugar. Stitched a corner edge onto the tag with some material and added beads. The little postcard came from my stash, I tore the stamp off an envelope and you can just see a 2009 postmark across it.

Entering for:
Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this week is Punch Away – bit of a stretch of the imagination but I did use the crop-a-dile to punch the holes for the eyelets.
