Tres Jolie

As crafters there are always elements that we repeat in our work, either favourite colours, images or embellishments. This week Tag Tuesday’s challenge (Kard Krazy) is “These Are A Few of My Favourite Things”. I possibly should have used a larger sized tag as I could have continued to add a few more favourites.

I narrowed down my choices to:- 1. Vintage images, especially females  2. Emulsion paint in heritage colours (used Camisole Pink on this tag) 3. Walnut ink (made from walnut crystals – used on base of tag) 4. Distress Inks 5. Sheet Music  6. Lace  7. Flowers (paper, fabric or pressed but got to have flowers) 8. Flat back pearls 9. Stamps (used large and small “Paris” from Oxford Impressions) 10. Embellishments (used a dressmaker’s pin on this tag)

What did not make it onto this tag – buttons and  fabric
