Dream a little dream!

Well I had a chance to get inky tonight! I wanted to try out a technique I had seen in the latest Craft Stamper.  It was using an old drinks can and up cycling to make pretty jewellery.  I didn't really want to make an item of jewellery so I made an embellishment for a tag instead!

This is my finished tag.  I cut some tattered florals from an old drinks can then inked with alcohol inks and stamped with archival.  I then layered them up to create the big floral embellishment.  I cut the bottom of a #10 ranger tag and embossed the top with a T!m Holtz frame.  It was Inked with seedless preserve, broken china and chipped sapphire.  I brushed some perfect pearls over the tag.  The small stampers anonymous butterflies were stamped randomly (I incorporated butterflies so I could enter this into Hels Sheridan's Sunday stamper - things that fly!!).
I added some ideology, some docrafts vintage ribbon (love love love!) and some vintage buttons.  I stamped on a canvas tag and distressed it to add to the top!  I linked the two pieces of card with large jump rings. And voila!

I hope you enjoy this, I'm kinda proud of it!

Happy inking
