Vintage Tag

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to show you a vintage tag I made. I love the vintage look and I had this stamped photo image from a swap that is perfect to use for this theme.

I colored the girl's dress using a pink Sharpie marker since the image was stamped on glossy card stock. I pounced some Tea Dye Distress ink over the image for it to look old and sponged the edges of the shape with black Staz On ink. The shape was cut using Spellbinders Labels 20 die.

On the side I used white matte stencil paste and a butterfly stencil. While the paste was wet I added blue glitter embossing powder and heat set it. This dried the paste at the same time.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day!
