Tag Time~

Hello Ladies.
What a great bunch of ladies you all are. Your comments are just so lovely, and make Blogging a pleasure. When I am having a bit of a down day, I read your lovely comments and I am instantly perked up, thank you all.

I had a busy day today, so did not get a chance to do any Crafting until after tea.
I am having a great time playing with some Big Tags at the mo, and I have done that again today. This time I have used one of my favourite Tim Holtz dies's, The Sewing Room. I think this dress form is stunning and you can pretty it up in so many ways.

I have inked up a cream coloured tag with Tim's Walnut and Evergreen Bough inks and stamped a swirl, post park and butterfly stamp onto the background. I have then added a Crafty Individuals pre-printed tag over the top, I distressed this up a bit with Walnut stain too.
The dress form I sent through I PP with vintage papers and stamped a butterfly on it, added pearls and old ribbon.
The gorgeous cream lace was a Christmas Pressy off my Friend Angie, it's fab as it has a sticky back, so very easy to use and I think it looks great on here, I have added a few Hobbyhouse pearls in Gold Trio colour and finished with some Paper Artsy green ribbon. I finished by spraying some Antique Linen ink over the top.
