This tag was number three of a series of 12 tags in the December issue of the Norwegian magazine - "Ett trykk". I wanted to show different styles and techniques. This is an example of vintage.
Vintage is a style where one often use old photos, light or brown colours, often with an aged or distressed effect. Lace and flowers are often used. I also wanted to show that a lot of the embellishment can be home made, old lace can be used and you can also use materials not intended for card making (like car polishing wool). The materials for a tag like this do not need to be large, but the effect can still be good.
The small tags and the vintage photo are from Pion design. The background paper is from
Panduro – Poppydesign – Vibeke Spigseth paper pad – Christmas. The background has been distressed with vintage photo distress ink. I created several snowflakes, using Martha Stewart punch arctic snowflake and punched it out in Vellum. The roses has been cut out with scissors and glued, and rolled together as roses. The leaves are med from left over paper and a leaf punch. Under the roses, I used wool for polishing cars!. The lace is an old lace.
