A couple of tags

Alison Bomber was back this week over at Paper Artsy with some stunning projects as always..you can pop over and see them here. On day one she did some gorgeous tags which is where my inspiration came from..


I used the same techniques as Alison..using frescos with stencils and stamps for the back ground. I cut the arches from a die I bought at Stevenage from once upon a stamp and painted,crackled and distressed them. I didn't have rusting powder for my embellishments so used distress embossing powder instead. Once everything was assembled on the tag I used rafia and string to tie the top. I really enjoyed this project so thank you Alison for a great week!!

thanks for stopping by...

  1. Fab tags. I found getting the reverse design a bit tricky.
