When A Few Alterations Are Required

Last week I shared three tags using Crafty Individual products. The shabby tags I used as a base are sold in packs of five  so after making the three Flapper tags with the travel stamps I still had two leftover to play with. As I had more Flappers (CI-322)stamped on the dyed, rose pink fabric I decided to make more tags using those leftovers. The two tags today make use of the other stamp in the set which is a dressmaker sign.
On the first tag I also used the dressform from stamp CI-306. This shows how versatile Crafty Individuals stamps are that they are so easy to mix ‘n’ match.The stamped dressform sits alongside some coffee stained lace, a teeny scrap of vintage ribbon and a vintage button with some ribbon threaded through it.
To create balance I also added  some of the same touches beside the dressmaking sign.On the second tag the dressmaking sign was again repeatedly stamped onto the tag.At the bottom of the tag I tied toffee coloured seam binding into a bow, this looks very pretty when the tag is hanging up. Using a tiny piece of the ribbon Marie gifted to me I teamed it up with a scrap of dressmaker tissue, beaded dangle and paper bloom.I have really enjoyed working on those shabby tags as a base, really like the size they are.
Tomorrow being the 1st of the month means there will be a new The Stampsmith Challenge theme announced and also the random prize winner for the Vintage entries, it would be lovely to see you then. Lynne x
