Magazine Challenge #7
I am slowly but surely working through the card challenges in the magazine 75 Creative Card Challenges. Challenge #7 is to use ten embellishments. I am sure I have accidentally used ten embellishments several times, but it is definitely a challenge to do it on purpose. I decided to decorate a tag and I started by making the background using Distress inks and Tim Holtz masks.I added a mini tag decorated with a bird diecut. Since I love vintage lace, I embellished pretty much every part of the tags with it. I used a strip of vintage straight pin tape that I found. It was used in automatic pinning machines for making garments. Lastly, I added buttons from my son's worn out, too small shirt. I like the vintage feel of it.
