S is for Shabby Chic

Good morning everyone, hope you are having a good day.
The current challenge theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is the letter S. Loved that theme straight away and after a little thought decided to go for Shabby chic, combined with Sapphire Blue, Sky and Stamping of course. Here is my make:
It's a tag holder made from a size 12 giant tag. I folded the bottom up to create the pocket and punched it with a Martha Stewart punch for a decorative edge. It was coloured with various blue Distress Stains, paints and inks. I decorated the front with some Spellbinder dies. The take wing stamp and butterfly I found some years ago in a dollar bin at Michaels.


This flower was made with the help of a Hampton Arts stamp, the other flowers were white roses from my Stash, coloured with some home made Sprays using Chipped Sapphire Distress re-inker and Silver perfect pearls.

I created a little tag to go inside the pocket and embellished it with some bits and pieces from the Graphics 45 Place in Time collection. I chose the little boy because I think he looks Sweet and Sassy
Well, hope you like this little project, I had fun creating it and thinking of all these Ss (now how on earth would you spell the plural of S??)

Thank you for visiting and I hope you get some time to play today...

I am putting this into the following challenges:

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!
