Artful Tag

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Some Stripes!
Compendium of Curiosities -Altered Metal Alcohol Inks, Page 56 of the book.
Sunday Stamper - Numbers.
I decided to create a tag this time around for the three challenges above.  My stripes come from a piece of 12 x 12 paper by Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante Collection which I machine stitched onto a tag using black thread. The Altered Metal Alcohol Ink technique has been applied to my flowers and my ARTFUL Philosophy tag at the top. The stamps I have used are from Oxford Impressions which are becoming a favourite of mine. My numbers are self explanatory.
I have added wings from the Heart Wings die, snaps to one edge of the wings, black lace and co-ordinated buttons. Enjoy you day and thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

Lovely tag, Tracy. I envy you your black cotton. I don't change my cotton until it runs out so I have got about a kilometre of white left...

This is such a wonderful vintage tag, Tracy! I love the Steampunk Debutante papers, and you've taken this design to a whole new level of gorgeousness! The altered metal is lovely, and the buttons and snaps and lace loo amazing with the stitching. "Artful" is the right word, for sure!
