A Vintage, Shabby Craft Room Challenge

Over at Craft Room, the current challenge is Vintage, Shabby.  Click HERE to take part.

I decided on a tag and having picked some cream pearlescent card I knew this image from Crafty Individuals Miniatures, People and Places 2 would be perfect for what I had in mind.

Now yesterday Keith and I had a great day at the Creative Stitches and Hobbycraft fair at the SECC in Glasgow.  I could've spent a fortune but you'll be glad to hear I was very good and stuck to my budget (more or less).  One of my purchases was a Cuttlebug which I wanted purely for embossing and so was desperate to use it.  So the pearlescent card went through and was embossed with tiny daisies, which I then brushed lightly with Milled Lavender Distress Ink.

A small square of cream crotchet lace, some pearls, a couple of pale flowers and some stamping using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo completed the look.
