Rustic Tags...........

I made this gorgeous tag for a special person who loves sewing and needlecraft to go with a present that I have bought her........I am glad i photgraphed it before I wrote on it and sent it......I am not that good at making things look rustic and i hope this does. There are two tags as one is inside the kind of book i made with a little clip and brad. All the edges are distressed and there is some recycled vintage lace, recycled fabric and recycled ribbon from a gift box plus a gorgeous watch face similar to a steampunk charm. I hope the pictures say more than me lol.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:

1. Try it On Tuesday - Altered Art - adding texture
2. Papercraft Star - Rustic
3. Creative inspiration - Make A Tag
5. PartyTime Tuesday - Anything Goes

This is just adorable, everything about it is so old feeling. Even the paper on the back makes me think of a shirtwaist fabric. Wonderful tag - lucky recipient too!!
