Vintage Tag

September 07, 2010

I'm back again...with another project! Here is my second ever tag! It's for the vintage challenge over at Let's ink it up!:

Okay so this is one of those big tags, No idea what number or anything so I will call it the big tag! Anyways for the background: I used make up sponges and two inks, Color Box: Chestnut Roan & Dark Brown and I made a marbelized effect. For the edges I used dark brown again. Now for the swirl stamp Its from Autumn Leaves, Stampology, Flourishes Version 2. I got mine at Wal Mart.
They are stamped with again dark brown by Color Box. For the next layer which is the music paper which I got from Steph! (Thanks Steph) Is cut 2 1/2 x 4 inches and distressed around the edges using my fingernail and inked up with dark brown, and chestnut roan.
For the last and final layer. It's a piece of Kraft cardstock that I stamped on with a stamp I got from Scrolls Work Stamps. They have some awesome stamps so go check them out! I stamped that also with dark brown. Now for the little flower it is a ribbon rose that is on a wire stem. I did not make them, but have no idea where I got them.
And to finish it all off I added some natural colored fibers!
