Tag for my Mom

Hi All! Carla here today... a bit later than usual! But suspence is a good thing right?!

I wanted to share a tag I made for my Mom who recently celebrated her 60th birthday! Where does the time go? Crazy! She, like me, loves shiny pretty things, so I think this is right up "our" alleys.

This started out as a regular old shipping tag. I painted the whole thing with Ivory CI Paint and added the lace and seam binding to it. Then I stamped my little tag, edged it with Beige and colored in the roses with Emerald, Rose Quartz and Burgundy paints. I also used the Beige on some metal letters I had after first giving them a quick coat of white alcohol ink as a base.




Here is a close up so you can see the detail on the flowers, they are kind of hard to see on the photo above.


Last step was adding a few small embellishments and voila! A pretty tag to brighten any birthday package!
