A Little bit French



Hello and welcome,

Today I have a post of a tag I designed for A Vintage Journey's 'A Little bit French' Challenge........here is the link to see all the wonderful entries......http://www.vintagejourney.com/2014/04/challenge-3-little-bit-french.html

The very talented Astrid from Astrid's Artistic Efforts is hosting this challenge. Pop on over to her blog and see her amazing entry.....http://astridsartisticefforts.blogspot.com.au/2014/04/a-little-bit-french-for-vintage-journey.html

Update:   I have been asked to include my French  Tag over at The Kraft Journal, so here I will create a link also to http://www.thekraftjournal.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/challenge-166-paris-or-france.html be sure to pop over to see all the amazing entries.  The theme is Paris!


Sorry no step by step for this tag as I had a few projects to get through today.
I used Tim's Tag and Bookplate Die, Tiny Tabs and Tags Die,  Idea-ology Film Strip Ribbon, Distress Marker Spritzer, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Black Soot Ink Pads.
Papers are from Papermania Do Craft 'Madame Payraud's.'
Seam binding


























































Thanks for stopping by today.

Wonderful Paris themed vintage tag! Love the rolled edge on the post card with the added butterfly! The Eiffel Tower charm is a nice touch on the red ribbon! Thank you for sharing with us at A Vintage Journey.

Beautiful tag, Karen.
I adore this paper range & bought it in both 12x12 & 6x6.

Hello Karen. I am loving the very sepia tones that you've achieved through your distressing on this tag. It's beautiful! I also love all of the images on the papers. They are just too pretty and very french. :) I also love the two ribbons that you've added...they look so vintage and soft; like satin. :) Very cute Eiffel Towel charm, too! Thanks so much for sharing your art with us at A Vintage Journey. <3 Candy
