Shabby Chic

I am a great admirer of Shabby Chic cards and am inspired by the amazing work of Jacqueline whose blog Jacqueline's Craft Nest is simply incredible.   Her work is so beautiful.   Please go see and leave her some love....Jacqueline loves to make tags and I decided to try and emulate her style and make a tag for Louise's Tag Tuesday challenge

this is what I made....
Post Card Tag

I got the background Post Card image from The Graphics Fairy and the vintage girl image from Antique Images.  Digital images are so cool.  You can resize them to whatever size you need.  I made mine small enough to fit on a tag.  I stamped a number of Hero Arts stamps onto the tag.  Old French Script, Silhouette Spray and Antique Background.   Used lots of Distress ink to stamp and distress the edges.  Added a flower and a ribbon.  I think I did okay!!!!

In fact, I love the tag so much, I decided to make a matching card.... resized a bit bigger this time....

Just made a few little changes... different colour ribbon, changed around the brads and flower colour. 


Hope all is well in your life this week.... I am still struggling a bit with back ache... have been to the spinal specialist and had an MRI ~ just waiting to hear what can be done to ease the issue... next Tuesday I go back for the results. 


Thanks for stopping by and as always any and all comments are appreciated.
