Wishing !

This tag is my entry into the UK Stampers Forum 'Vintage Choice' Competition. This competition has finished but if you like entering competitions then the forum has at least one each 2 months, they are free to enter and the prizes are donated by great sponsors. You will need to join the forum (Free also !) to enter.

 I started with a card blank and coloured it with cut'n'dry foam and Distress inks in victorian velvet and dried marigold.


The main stamped image is from Tuscan Rose and this, along with some swirls, was stamped in Versafine vintage sepia ink.  The flowers were originally white paper daisies and I coloured them with more victorian velvet and stamped with the swirl adding some gold Stickles glitter glue in the centres.

The lady's top was coloured in with some copic markers in lilac and some highlights were added with a flesh tone to her face. Gold Stickles was added to highlight her hair.  She was given a few lilac pearls as a necklace.


I chose two pieces of lace and layered these at the bottom of the tag again adding some lilac pearls on the cream piece.  Some edging was punched out with a Martha Stewart punch, coloured with victorian velvet, trimmed and adhered with glossy accents on the left.  The leaves are wooden and are coloured and edged with dark brown Copic. 

The metallic word plate was cut out and stuck in place and the flowers and leaves were adhered with glue dots.  Three more larger lilac pearls were added at the top of the tag and a piece of mustard silk ribbon tied through the hole to finish.
