Yes another tag!!!!!!

It is challenge time again over at Creative Card Crew and for this fortnight it is Anything goes and is being sponsored by Marianne Design. Here is the prize up for grabs for one lucky person.

Great prize huh!
I have made yet another tag and this time it is a haberdashery theme.  I quite enjoyed putting this together as I have had this TH stamp set for quite some time and it has not been out of the packet.  Naughty I know lol.

I used chipboard for the tag and I primed it then painted it in a buff colour.  I used rusty hinge and brushed corduroy TH distress ink.  I then flicked water over the tag and let it air dry.  I stamped the tape measure, stitching and the dress form for the background.  The wooden embellishments came from Crafty Emblies.  The scissor charm from my stash.  I cut the reels myself and wound cotton and fibre around them.  The buttons are from my stash as was the muslin which as you see I tried to make it look like a roll of fabric.  The words were computer generated.

Why not head on over to Creative Card Crew and join in the fun.

  8. Gorgeous tag! Love the stamped stitching and all your sewing notions and embellishments are perfect.
    Thanks for joining us yet again at Anything But A Card (didn't imagine I'd see you quite so soon!! But really pleased!).

  9. Wow - this is so much more than a tag. For a start the 'background' looks so like fabric itself, hard to believe its chipboard. But all the stamping and embellies (especially love your handcut spools) make it into a work of art. I don't like sewing but if I had this in front of me I'd be inspired! Nicola x

  10. Wow! this is so clever and very creative. It is much, much more than a Tag. I love it!
