Vintage Tag by Marina Wilson

Good morning, everyone!  Lucky, lucky you…I have another project to share with you today 🙂  Design team member Marina Wilson created this beautiful vintage looking tag using some of the yummy goodies in the ButterBeeScraps shop:

Marina created the background for her tag using glimmer mist that she created herself, and stamped images using stamps from Tim Holtz – Reflections and Mona’s Sketchbook.  She then distressed the edges of her tag using a combination of Ground Espresso distress ink and Inka Gold.

Along the right hand edge of the tag, Marina added a die cut from the Tim Holtz Holiday Lamppost die.  She then layered two Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishments (#851-B) and one Bronze Flower Metal Filigree Embellishment (#052-B) on the lamppost.  …and just to add a few final touches to the lamppost, Marina added a few SS16 Light Rose Flat Back Glass Rhinestones and a small white flat back pearl from her stash to the center of the bronze flower.

Marina opted to cut a “Suzie” Vintage Crochet Doily in half and glued it along the bottom of her tag.  She then layered a small tag, some mulberry paper flowers and a small bird in a nest in the lower right hand corner.

Marina balanced the bottom right corner up on the top left corner using more paper flowers.  She then tied some seam binding to the top of the tag and hung a Miniature Amber Glass Bottle (#M440-AR) from the binding.  If you look closely, you can also see that she filled the little bottle with some SS8 Clear Pointy Back Crystal Rhinestones.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project…I sure did!  Marina has uploaded a YouTube video that you can watch if you’d like a little closer look at her tag 🙂  Thank you so much for popping by, and I will see you tomorrow for another tutorial 😉
