Colourful Creations - Tag of the Month - VINTAGE TAG

In between pages I decided to join the Colourful Creations Tag event and create a Vintage Tag. The requirements were not restrictive only that it represents vintage - so we could go to town!!! Yippee!

I enjoyed creating this tag as it was 2 weeks since I had done anything in my scrap room (was getting withdrawals) but the tag challenge got the creative juices flowing and this was my result.  I usually get inspiration from a designer called Julie van Oosten - she created elements with her 'Designing Elements' called 'Collections' when it comes to vintage.  She has a few designs that I like but usually mine never turn out anywhere near as fancy as hers LOL!

I used embossing powder on some paper that I used from a border punch and the stamped letter was embossed also.  I fussy cut the flowers, butterfly and leaves and used a walnut stain to distress the tag.  All in all I was happy with the result.

Happy Days
