Truly old vintage look! D

Well posting three times in one weekend is truly unheard of but here I am lol.  

I wanted to create something vintage in the way I see vintage as.  Old, neglected and dirty from time gone by.  Something dragged down from the attic and something so vintage and fragile - time worn!

I made another tag and will be using it for a birthday so time and effort not wasted.  Hope she likes it as her motto is less is more - don't think it fits that lol.  Oh well.

Here goes a list of things of broken down supplies - took me longer to do this lol

Chipboard tag
cream paint
distressed and TH ink pads - vinyage photo, and brushed cordruoy
several papers distressed and torn
2 of my own crochet flowers
a rosette - torn and cut about
Pretty pink lace - torn and made ragged
vintage image on photo paper
buttons broken by my own fair hands with help of wire cutters lol
a couple of cotton doilies torn and battered
a tag made and stamped with the words Time is precious
Torn and tattered edge of doily for the hanger
everything has been douse in ink, kicked round the room and lawn mowered lol.

Now for overload of pics and I hope you all like it a little at least lol....
