Vintage Valentine Tag Swap

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

I signed up to partipate in a tag swap with Arlene on youtube and Life At The Srapbeach.  The theme was Vintage Valentine and I was assigned to group three.  





















I used the Avery 110005 Shipping Tags from Staples as the base for my tag.  I distressed the edge of the tag, sprayed with glimmer mist and then used Distress Ink around the edges with two different colors. 





I then stamped and embossed the image. The stamp I used was Party Hat Cats from Lost Coast Designs.  Embossed with black Craft Essentials embossing powder from JoAnn's and black Crystal pigment ink. 










Them embellishments were glued on with Glue Dots glue lines and small glue dots.  I cute the leather heart out by hand and the whole tag was sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist to give it a sparkle.
The handle of the tag is antique vintage lace from the Lavonia Antique's Market, Lavonia, Georgia.







My group was required to make 11 tags...
1 to keep and 10 to give away...


I'm looking forward to see what I get back.

Thanks for the visit,
Micki

Great tags! I really like the image you used and all the details. I saw your comment on my blog about the ribbon storage. It is the white one from Michaels and I really like it. I need to get a couple more to organize the rest of my ribbon. I'll get one every week with my coupons.
