Sewn Tag

Created for a Tag Challenge, where the theme is to use 3 items - Brads, Ribbon and Buttons. It also fits the theme on Saturday suprise which is "Sewing Basket". The tag was created by sponging a cream manilla tag with Aspen Mist chalk ink in the centre and Gingerbread Chalk ink around the edges. It was then stamped in Aspen Mist with a French Script and sewn around the edges. The PaperWhimsy image was sewn onto a piece of Calico fabric which had been sponged in matching ink. Ribbon added to top and bottom, tiny buttons aroud the main image, brads at the base & fibres to finish.
