I've not created a tag in a long while so decided to use the Madame Birdcage Skirt again for my creation for 100 Proof Press this week.
I embossed my tag with a Cuttlebug folder and coloured with Distress Ink brushed corduroy and vintage photo and added a little random stitching to the edges.
I cut a circle from kraft card and stamped the the bird from her dress onto the circle and coloured with Distress Inks adding FLY to jump rings for added dimension.
I have stamped Madame Birdcage Skirt onto kraft again adding radom stitching to the edges and added to the tag, securing with copper brads. The sentiment IMAGINE has been added to the top and co-ordinated ribbon completes my tag.

Thanks for stopping by and a big HELLO to my new followers, welcome along to my creative journey.  Tracy x x
