Vintage at the Outlawz....D

Hi everyone 

Today I am showing a vintage side of me - well it was required of me to do so.  At first I had no idea what I was going to do as these days I tend to not be into paper craft a great deal so felt stuck!  I just knew I ought to do something different so two tags it was.  I had a few chipboard tags I had cut out at christmas and they were looking at me from my windowsill shouting use me, use me! I just could not disappoint.  Believe it not I found two pictures on the floor which I had originally printed out to transfer to canvas as part of a collage therefore my project was coming together.  Obviously meant to be huh.

I painted and inked the tags and threw a little water of them.  I found two air dry frames my friend had made so they came in handy.  I stick them onto the pics and trimmed off the excess.  I filled one with glossy accents and the other just a little rock candy.  Wanted different effects.  Found some roses in the drawer and edged in ink.  I also found some leaves I cut out previously so embossed them using frantage, copper.  I inked up some lace. I pleated it after inking it up and layered it twice at the bottom.  I printed a couple of sentiments onto photo paper, inked and distressed it with frantage round the edges.  A little bit of spare bling  and lace through top of tag and voila all complete.






Thats it folks.  Why not head on over to Paper ala Mode and join in the fun.  We would love to see you there.
