Shabby Chic...

Good Morning...

This week's challenge at Creative Inspirations is Shabby Chic!
This week's prize for the lucky winner is from 
and is a 
£10 gift voucher

Today's DT project is something a little different from me mainly because there is hardly any colouring in!  I definitely felt a little adrift without my beloved Copics!

I decided to make a vintage style tag using stamps from The Paris Collection by Stempelglede.  I die cut the tag shape and stamped it with some background writing.  I used Pion papers to create layers and for the image coloured in one of the stamps from the set.  I also went for a 3D effect by stamping extra images and cutting out the butterflies...(have I ever mentioned how much I don't like cutting out)!

I decorated and embellished the tag with flowers, pearls, lace and twine and used a little bit of Frantage as well.  

I also added a little pocket with another tag inside...well I had phaffed for ages by this time so I thought a bit more would n't hurt!

Here we are...more shabby than chic but it kept me out of mischief for a while...
