It's Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey Challenge

Hi everyone x As it's the 5th Friday in the month its time for our "Tag Friday Post" over at A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog. 
Some of my lovely team mates put together some amazing tags and share the details of their process too !!
There's also some  exciting news too !! To find out more click HERE

Meanwhile here is my tag :
 I started off by painting one of Rangers Manila tags in a very light brown chalk paint, then added some That's Crafty Crackle Glaze. Once dry I painted over some DArt Chalk Paint in Lace.
Distress Ink in Cracked Pistachio, Pickled Raspberry and Spiced Marmamlade was applied to the tag, followed by some stamping using Ranger Archival in Sepia. The Wildflower stamps are by Lynne Moncrieff for That's Crafty. (Lynne's Wildflowers Set 2)
The sentiment and butterflies are also from one of Lynne's stamp sets for Thats Crafty.( Lynnes Affirmations Set 1)
The butterflies were inked in Cracked Pistachio and Pickled Raspberry using a Ranger pen nib  to blend the colours.  Some  of Tim's Idea-ology was adhered to the butterflies. 
The sentiment was stamped on to some tea/coffee stained papers and a litle piece of lace added.
I then edged the tag in Black Soot DI to make the tag pop.

Thank You so much for dropping in and for leaving a comment x I really do appreciate the comments you leave and endeavour to repay the compliment. 

Huge Hugs and Happy Crafting
