Its a Tag...........!!

Hi, not a very original title is it.............lol, but thats what it is.

Made originally for the Crafty Individuals Challenge - 'Vintage with a Heart'.  Am I the only person on the planet who cannot get their head around the word Vintage........Vintage Wine and Vintage Clothes I understand, but what about the rest........guess am totally dumb........lol

Copied Jean's (CI) strut design which I thought was a brilliant way of showing a tag and it also can double up as a card..........so cool don't you think......
Stamps used:  Crafty Individuals and Darkroom Door. Other products used:  White and Clear Embossing Powder, Paint Dabber, Crackle Glaze and Distress Ink.  The rest is from my stash, including the vintage lace (its not really vintage lace just had it a long time).

Simon Says Stamp and Show also want to see a Tag.  So two for the price of one, can't be bad can it.....!
http://simonsaystampandshow.blogspot.com/   Both these challenge sites are well worth a visit, the DTeams on both have done some fabulous work and so are all the entries.
Thank you for popping in and hope you have a very Happy Sunday.  Will be visiting you all very soon and thank you for all the wonderful comments you leave me.  Hugs Annette x

Lovely tag, and those roses really finish it off nicely! :) The Design Team are really pleased that you joined us for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week - Thank you!

Faye said...

Hi Netty, It certainly has a vintage look to me. And it's gorgeous. I have trouble distinguishing "grunge" and "shabby chic", neither of which I am. However, I'm near enough to vintage to understand that one.

donna said...

Wonderful tag Annette. I think vintage just means old and distressed. Hmm that makes me vintage. I love how you did the stand..hugs..Donna
