Made a decorative tag for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I used  recycled card from a cereal box for the base and covered this with some old book-paper. I then coloured this with Distress inks and cut-n-dry foam and stamped with an inkblot stamp in browns and yellows.

I then stamped three abstract form stamps in Versafine black ink on white card. These were trimmed out and stuck in place as shown. The tag had a black eyelet applied with the crop-a-dile and was edged in black Posca with some swirls stamped in more Versafine ink.

A sticker tab was applied on the top right. I then used some alpha stickers and spelled out the word 'style' on some grey card and applied this on foam pads as shown. I used a couple of silver decorative paperclips as embellishments.

Finally I added some black & white check ribbon, a piece tied around the tag with a small bow and a piece threaded through the eyelet and tied in place with a piece of jute string to finish.

Liked the idea of old paper and black & white together !
