Vintage Tags

Here is more art from a recent swap on our England Stamping & Crafting Yahoo Group.

The art mingle featured vintage tags, and we made two different tags for three recipients.

One of them features a bride stamp, which is absolutely gorgeous! I bought it from my friend Beckie. The stamp is huge, but I was determined to use it on the tag mingle. I stamped the image onto Shrinky-Dink and colored it with Tim Holtz distress inks and chalks. The heart on the tag comes from a new prima product, stitched mulberry paper, which is beautiful stuff! Prima Flirty paper and flowers were used for embellishment.

The other tag features a Magenta rubber stamp, which comes as a set of four female faces. I recently unmounted and cut the stamp so that I could easily use each of the faces individually. This tag might look familiar as it is the same stamped image and paper that I recently used when making an artist trading card. The princess and word stamps are from Stampin' Up.
