Altered tag

I have not posted for ages as I have been incredibly busy, both at work and with creating and scheduling projects for my various design teams. As I am away for most of July and had to schedule my July posts too well and create the projects of course. But today I finally had some time to play. I was sent a pack of 5 large decorated tags by Crafty Individuals. Someone has asked me to alter them for her and make them into a tag book. At least that's what I decided I would do with them. Here is the first one, both the front and the back:
 This side had a beautifully printed background already, all I did was add an image, some flowers and lace, and a bit of stamping. The little butterflies which were stamped also.


 The back was really plain, so here I created the background pretty much completely.

The two sides of the tags are beautiful. The romantic themes, the stamps, the design with delicate lace and flowers - it's a dream!

Oh how pretty this tag is Astrid. Love the delicate flourish on the front and that's such a feminine image too. I have some of those lovely tags and I haven't been able to bring myself to do anything to them yet in case I spoil them. I must take a leaf out of your book.

wow Astrid you are such a talent .. love these colors and images ... perfect for your style ...
you mentioned the stamps on my last LO .. very easy .. they are Prima stamps (acrylic) I just stamp them randomly and layer with different colored ink ... the chicken wire is a mask .. Crafters workshop ... it does not really matter which stamp of mask you use first .. just stamp away until you are happy ... love Heather x

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
