Sewing mends the soul..

Hi there,
Well it is tag time again, but this is not dylusions!!a vintage feel tag made with some great stamps from indigo blu. So here it is:
I started by using a distress crackle paint resist and when dry adding distress inks, love this technique.I then added some stamped detail to the background. The main image and sentiment were stamped onto sticky back canvas.
I added some fab flower trim and ideaology ribbon trim, coloured using distress ink to add a soft feel and an ideaology button, and some metal ideaology, oh and a little bottle full of seed beads .

thanks for stopping by, makes my day!
