Make My Monday - Tag or Topper

This week's challenge at Make My Monday is Tag or Topper.  As you can see, for my DT  project., I made a tag. I coloured the white inner layer with Distress ink and stamped it with script and heart stamps - it's very subtle - a bit too subtle for the photo I think! Then I used die-cuts from a sheet of Fancy Pants printed die-cuts I impulse bought years ago and have never used. I used every distressing trick in the book - inking, crumpling, scratching and frantage-ing ... I'm surprised anything survived!  Finally I added lace and a brad.

We'd love you to come over to Make My Monday , see what the rest of the DT have done and join in the challenge.

Every technique of distressing is what makes this tag stand out, I love it's shabby chic style. Ever so often I try to make a tag, but my mind just goes blank, it's such a small space to decorate! Maybe I should build up the courage and give it a go this week. I really need to make some Chrstmas tags, and I know that won't happen in November and December!, too many other things to do then!

This is really pretty Marina and the shabby chic bacground sets off the die cuts perfectly.
