Fairy Tag

Hello blog visitors, hope you are all having a fabulous weekend; I know I am. Saturdays are my favourite crafting days and I most definitely find myself in a tag mood this weekend!!

Over at The Shabby Tea Room this week they have a "hey pumpkin" challenge.  The colours of the challenge is awesome..................take a look at this inspirational image.....isn't she just gorgeous??!!

I made what I call my "angel tag" and I have a specific friend whom I intend gifting it to; she was one of the first friends I made here in Dubai; she is from Jordan and she totally loves angels.  So without further is my tag...........

This tag was made from bits and bobs.  I used a ranger tag and covered it with paper scraps.  A script stamp using black soot and Victorian velvet distress ink...I fussy cut the butterflies that came with the image, applied glossy accents, some leftover bling and a small square of net behind the fairy image.  A Tim Holtz pin, a gold lock and key and awesome burnt orange fibre wool.

The angel is an image I downloaded off the Internet; used glossy accents to highlight her bodice and the rose in her hair.  The wings are from a last year Xmas flower - used silver glitter on the borders and adhered to the back of the image  Random feathers, sticks and flowers completed the look.

Here the tiny gold key tied to the end of the fibres is clearly visible.  Used a different type of netting to create a V to insert a poem and adhered artificial Xmas leaf bits to secure the opening for the poem insert.  

The insert is a fairy poem.  Left over laces decorate the edge of the tag and another different type of dotty lace dangling down completes the look

Back of the tag and poem insert on the right

No poem insert Tag only!

Poem insert - found the poem on the Internet, cut it to size, inked the edges and adhered to...

..Prima packaging.

A final look at the front of the tag...

I hope you like my tag and mostly I hope my friend will like it too!!
