A warm welcome to you all, and especially new followers, for this Tag Friday post for A Vintage Journey.
When there are five Fridays in the month the Creative Guides get the chance to play and craft a tag which might be a little different from our normal techniques. I took the opportunity to experiment with some tea bag fabric which a textile friend sent me a couple of years ago but which has been sitting in my fabric drawer waiting to be used.
I decided to use the fabric to encapsulate some inked and stamped elements as it is quite translucent.
I inked my tag with some text stamps and then made made a little collage using a ledger stamp, butterfly, a die cut leaf and the small quote. These needed to be quite dark to show through the fabric.
I couldn't glue the material down so stitched it around the edges although I did put a little bit of glue on the butterfly and leaf to add a bit more contrast and to stop the fabric bubbling up. I then added the simple flower cluster and finally everything got a spritz with Vintage Photo Distress Marker using the Distress Spritzer.
I am really very pleased with the ethereal effect, although it is quite difficult to photograph given the light colour of the fabric.
I do hope you will hop on over to see what my fellow Creative Guides have created. This is always a fun challenge for us as we all try and create something out of the ordinary to share with you.
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have a lovely weekend.
