Beads, Buttons and Bows.

I was playing around with a shabby chic background for a tag and thought I would use it for this weeks challenge. So here is what I came up with after a lot of fiddling around!

The background is a text printed assortment of picket fence and spun sugar and aged mahogany inks that has also been clear embossed, stained and ripped at the edges. then I found three different wooden B's that I covered in pearl buttons, some so tiny I lost a few! Then glass pink beads and finally a couple of silver bows. then I printed 'utton, ead an ow' and topped with some gingham ribbon and another bow.
Very very pretty tags this week, lovely to enjoy. Hope you are enjoying the lovely Autumn air, I'm fair knoctobered out, it's my favourite time of year! Hugs to you all, Barb x

  1. Just love the background on this tag, Barb. Its superb. I quite often play around with backgrounds on tags and store them for future use with no clear idea how they may end up - great fun! Carolyn
