Paris haute couture

 

This week at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a blue & white or blue & cream photo colour inspiration. I have gone for blue & cream and given it a vintage feel.

I have used Graphic 45 ~ Fashionista Collection papers.

I distressed a tag by misting with two colours of Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist and then inking the edges with distress inks. Love the effect this gives.

I then inked up this beautiful Stamp Happen Inc ~ Paris Socialite stamp with denim blue ink and stamped it onto the tag.

I made a matching manila cardstock base for below the spotty paper by spraying and inking in the same way.
The wooden mannequin is by Kaisercraft. That got the same treatment as the tag and then I added some gems and a cork button.


The top of the tag has some silky navy blue ribbon and a Tim Holtz ~ Philosophy Tag. I smudged some gold paint into this to highlight the word and numbers.


I am going to enter this in at:
Thank you for looking.
