Vintage Tag

 Sometimes I make something and it just isn't right for the look I am trying to create... so I leave it over to the side of my work table... and I don't have a place to put it, so I have to use it... quickly too... or else the space gets all junky... LOL... not that it isn't anyway... but hey... why add more to that mess... 

So I had this really nice pen nib stamp... so I stamped it... and a few pens... and of course an ink well...  Is this a Wendy Vecchi style or what... yeah i have a few things a little bit different, but hey... I think it is...  so I will finish it up for this challenge on Simon Says Stamp and Show .  
 I also had a few tea bag tiles that I had found... and had to make this vintage looking wreath for this tag... I love to make tea bag tiles... and this is one that I created...  from a vintage postcard... and then made the tiles move into this wreath... 
 Now what tag would be finished with out seam binding ribbon dyed to match... and also a few paper flowers... I made the large one from Tattered Floral die (Tim's die cut)  and then the smaller ones from punches...  a few leaves that were created with distress stains and a few words stamped on them...  
I made the little slide with a piece of glass and some copper tape around the edges... love the vintage feel of this...  
BUT I still have one more project coming up... so please hold on.... 
It is forth coming...  
Have a wonderful day... and enjoy creating something for someone you love... Thanks for stopping by for a visit... 
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
