Tag - a little more Shabby Chic loveliness xx

Hello again

This week I made a tag for a crafty friend of mine. Marion or Maz to her friends invited me to her home last week and showed me how to make jewellery!! Maz had me threading beads and natural stones onto wires, wire cutting and then making little circles at the end of the wires. I am sure there are more technical terms for these processes but I am a novice when it comes to making jewellery.

I came home with a gorgeous necklace so I wanted to make her a thank you card. As you can see I made a thank you tag instead.

The image is on a sheet from Pion Design. It is Grandma's Attic Tinted - Bouquet. Love using these images, I may have said that once or twice on my blog. The papers are from Maja Design pack - Vintage spring basics. I dry brushed the papers with gesso very lightly.

The gorgeous tiny butterflies are on a sheet in the Vintage Spring basics pack so I thought it would be a shame not to use them. Oh and maybe just a bit lazy not to make my own butterflies.

A close up of the bottom of the tag. The two Labels were die cut using a Crafts Too die - Labels 3 die. Then the frame stamping behind the labels and the double stamped sentiment are from Inkadinkado - Expressions and Frames stamp set.

Oh and just a few pearls and gesso painted flowers - well you have too. I would like to enter this tag into the Gloria Designs Challenge Blog for their '11 Tag Your It Challenge.

Here is a picture of the necklace Maz helped me to make, well it would be rude not to share.

Love it xx

Thank you for taking the time to come over and have a peep at my blog.
