Love Wish and Dream tag and holder


Hello everyone, welcome and thank you for visiting. I want to start by saying thank you to all the wonderful comments you have left me over the last few days, - you are all so much appreciated!
Today I have a tag to share with you and a little bag to hold it. I love these little paper bags as they are so versatile, just the right size to hold a tag and fun to decorate. Just in case you are interested, as I often get asked about these things, - I found mine here:
I coloured my bag, both front and back with Peacock Feather and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks mixed with some Adirondack Coffee Die ink. I then decorated the front and back with various Tim Holtz stamps. The little ticket is my own design and will probably come your way with Friday's Freebie. The tag was made in a very similar way and of course everything was embellished with some ideaology bits and pieces.
here are some details:

Hope you have enjoyed this little project, created just for fun, and see you next time.
I'm entering this into the Happy Daze Love is all around challenge
Sugar Creek Hollow, where the theme is Romantic Love

  15. Another stunningly beautiful make, Astrid! You have a way with the colour blending in your backgrounds which is just magical. Beautiful use of the Papillons, and the tag inside is a delight with all that exquisite stamping... Thanks for the tip on paper bags - been hovering over the die, and thinking I really couldn't justify it!

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!
