It's Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog

hello everyone xx I hope this post finds you well and that you have enjoyed the summer, even if it was a bit wet in  many areas of the UK. 
It has been a busy one for me with lots of "Special Birthdays" and weddings.  Thankfully the pace is slowing down and I am looking forward to having some time to enjoy creating in my craft room x I am still knitting and recently started to knit some socks for babies/toddlers, which are great for using up left over wool.
Below is the tag I am sharing over at A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog

It is a Size 8 Manila Tag by Ranger, which was sprayed with Tim's new Distress Oxide Sprays. I really love the way the colours blend. I then stamped some text using a Paperartsy text stamp by Lin Brown. Some lace and paper from Paper Garden were adhered using glue medium on the back and front. The dress form stamp and die, which is by LaBlanche, was inked using Ranger Archival Sepia. Once cut it was edged using  a charcoal pencil, then adhered using foam tape, which gave some depth/dimension to the tag. Tim Holtz Transparent Wings were adhered on the front of the dress form and a pen nib used as the body of the butterfly.

For more tag inspiration please pop over to the AVJ challenge blog where my teamies are sharing their fabulous tags, with details on their own blogs, which you can view by clicking their name.
