A little vintage tag

Hi Everyone.

Vintage shouted out to me today.

Materials needed:
Die cut scroll.
Backing paper with script on it.
Distress inks in chipped sapphire, black soot, vintage photo, milled lavender.
Adirondack – woodlands.
Martha Stuart punch.
Clear embossing ink.

Background stamps
Marianne silhouette die 
Border Punch
WOW Embossing powders:

Take your white tag and stamp dots on each side with clear embossing ink.  Sprinkle clear embossing powder and heat set.   Once cool put distress ink over the tag in blue, purple and go around the edges in black.  Rub off excess over the embossing with a piece of kitchen towel (resist technique).
Use a piece of plain card stock to make a mat/layer to the next tag which is smaller than the first.
Stamp a background stamp on white card stock with clear embossing ink, sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set.  Once cool put Adirondack woodlands ink over the embossing.  Rub off excess over the embossing.(resist technique). Cut this in a smaller tag shape.
Use your edging punch down both sides of a piece of white card.  Colour this in with the same distress inks you used for the original tag.
 Get a piece of ribbon which co-ordinates with your colour theme and place down the centre of the punched piece of card.
Stamp out or die cut a cameo frame and ink with clear embossing ink and emboss with Copper powder and cut out.  Colour the edges in the same colours you used for the background stamp.
Stamp or die cut the cameo of the ladies face in a script backing paper and cover in clear embossing ink   Take an oval die and cut out a piece which will fit the silhouette. Cover in lagoon embossing powder. Glue the silhouette onto the frame.
Use a gem for a jewel around the neck.  Die cut a scroll and put the tag together.
Use ribbon through the hole at the top of the tag.

Take care...Sue
