A Vintage Tag

Hi everyone. Today I was chatting to my good friend Sherry on Skype for about 3 hours lol and we chat and craft because she is in the US and I am here in Australia so this is the cheapest way for us to chat, and chat we do. Sherry showed me how to do these rose bud flowers and before we finished our call I said I will have something made and up on my blog before you get up in the morning, it was a challenge to myself. So here it is 11.36pm at night and I have been fussing around with it for quite a while now trying to get everything just right. Sorry about the images girls but I am tired and I thought it looked better on camera but obviously not hehehe but I am not taking the pics again. Anyway on with the tag. . . . the tag itself is a size 8 shipping tag that I embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Victoria), then Glimmer Misted in Vintage Pink, Key Lime Pie and Suede. I used my new SU Sizzlit leaf die, then I made that lovely pink flower on the right using Prima Hydrangeas in white and glimmer misted them in the vintage pink with a small spray in Key Lime Pie, I then gave them the treatment from a video I watched the other day that Jade from Jadedstudios put out and I just love the outcome. I sprinkled Diamond Dust over the flowers once finished. The rose bud is made from SU Pink Pirouette cardstock. The fibres are from my stash as are the charms. The vintage pic is from a gorgeous woman on you tube Rosanne - roxycar11. The lace and pearls are from my local fabric shop.

So there you have it girls my vintage tag. Sherry I met my challenge lol and had fun doing it. That is it for me tonight as I have to get up early and make cupcakes and vol eu vants for my daughters birthday tea party that she is having tomorrow for her friends who are driving up from Armidale and surrounding areas. Should be a great tea party.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with artistic beauty.

I have had a glum, stressful day but your gift tag is so pretty it put a smile on my face and makes me want to try the glimmer mist-I just bought 2 colours and have never tried them before. It is super beautiful-really nice to see

Oh Michelle, this is absolutely stunning. You have risen well to the challenge. I love how you finished the tag with the embossing and glimmer mist. I might have to try that next time we Skype. It looks absolutely beautiful
