Vintage Tag


Out of a Hat Creations theme this week is vintage lace.  I recently held a vintage tag swap on the PaperPlay forum and made this tag.  It didn't say how much or in my case less, you had to use so I hope this is okay as there is just a strip at the bottom covering the beaded trim.  The image was stamped onto tissue paper with timber brown stazon and given a coat of matte medium.  This then enabled me to use my artbars over the top to colour in the flowers.  A piece of purple lacy ribbon was attached to the top of the tag, pearls added and fibres.

Hi Sam. Gorgeous tag and beautifully stamped. I notice you have used timber brown. Have you had any problem with that ink stamping onto say, glossy card? I have bought 3 timber brown ink pads and non of them set/dry :( Thanks for sharing with the Hatters.

This is lovely Sam, thanks for the tip about coating with the medium and then being able to colour, I've often wondered about how people coloured onto tissue paper x
