Vintage Tag

Today I have created a tag using leftovers from my desk using the fabulous THINK AND WONDER plate from Artistic Outpost.
I had a jumbo tag lying around on my desk and this was the perfect opportunity to use up some scraps and challenge myself. I applied Crackle Texture Paste to the background applied to a coat of metallic gold Embossing Paste. Once dry I applied a good coverage of Vintage Photo Distress Stain; I love how the stain seeps through the cracks to add to the vintage feel.
Wax has been applied to the edges of my tag and I used the ornate frame to showcase my focal image which I coloured with a touch of Vintage Photo Distress Ink and flicking with water to add blotches to the background. The frame has been coloured with Antique Linen Distress Ink and Vintage Photo applied to the edges along with touches of wax.
I died some seam binding with Distress Ink and created an enamelled embellishment by adding Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel to a mould again adding wax to the top to highlight the design and texture. The enamelled embellishment has been added to the died seam binding and some rustic twine.
I took a scrap of seam binding from my desk, died with Distress Inks and then stamped part of the focal image onto the seam binding using Black Archival Ink. I also added a smaller enamelled embellishment to the bottom corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Tracy x x

What a wonderful tag - and created from leftovers too. Stunning crackle and beeswax textures - and the echo of the faces on the seam binding is a brilliant touch. This is rocketing up there with my favourite AO creations of yours - amazing!
