GINGERSNAP CREATIONS & 365 Cards

Have been making some vintage look items lately, and have put them together to make a tag which I am entering into Ginger snap creations challenge and 365 cards.

I used some vintage paper and covered my tag, I then used Distress ink around the edges.
For the letters I cut out random headlines from a newspaper and soaked in tea.  I then dried and cut out the letters needed.
I made the bird by drawing a bird shape onto card and cutting out I also made a seperate wing.

I painted this in burnt umber acrylic paint when dry I painted other areas with a blue/green colour.
I then sanded all over.  I painted a stitched line in white around the edge.

I had some brown lace for decoration and some vintage look buttons.
Enjoy!
