Tag! You're It!

Tags are such a fun way to try new ideas - so I hope you will enjoy this vintage treasure I have to share with you today!

I startred off with a plain white tag, and stamped/embossed the background using JustRite Elegant Fronds background stamp and Wow Embossing Powder (Pepper).  Next, I cut scalloped circles from cardstock using Quickutz/Lifestyle Crafts Scallop Circles Die, and glued these down to my background, to add dimension.  I used an off-white acrylic paint over the entire tag, and then spritzed the it using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Fully Purple and Olive Vine.   Next, I used the JustRite Shabby Music Background, and stamped that onto the raised areas of the tag. I added a little more Glimmer Mist to blend the background.

My focal piece was stamped from the JustRite Violette Vintage Lables and embossed with Wow Presidio Purple. It was spritzed with the same colors of Glimmer Mist.  Want2Scrap Pearls were added to the flower centers.  A Dusty Attic Chipboard flourish was added to help frame the label.  It was stamped using the Elegant Fronds stamp, and embossed with Wow Angel Wings.  I nestled paper flowers, Bazzill Bling, and some Tim Holtz metal embellishments around my flourish.  The gold netting under my label is from Webster's Pages.  The lace at the bottom was dyed with the Glimmer Mist.  The bow at the top of the tag is May Arts Ribbon.
