Tag You're it Challenge #6- Vintage Romance

Here is my tag for this week's Tag you're it challenge where the theme is vintage romance. I used a white tag and applied a variety of distress inks to it using a shaving brush. This is a new technique for me, as I normally use sponges, but I can recommend it for a more subtle approach and I definitely need some more shaving brushes now!  I over stamped with a Hero arts script stamp and the music (PSX). I added the two hearts (Crafty Individuals) Stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent crimson. The rose buds and ribbons were from my stash. Thanks for looking!


  1. This is gorgeous Sally and thanks for the tip on the shaving brush. I've got some stipple brushes somewhere which I think might give a similar effect so will be hunting them out.

  2. Lovely stamping and colouring, fancy trying that technique now, just need some shaving brushes lol. Hope to have a play with tags by Friday.

  3. Hi there Sally, another very elegant tag, you are so brill at these.

  8. Such a beautiful tag, Sally. I haven't tried a shaving brush, but the result is lovely, I shall have to see if i can find one.
    Your hearts are perfect. Brilliance crimson is one of my favourite inks, it's so subtle but pearly isn't it.
    It's all very romantic with the music. I love it.


  9. I simply adore this Sally! It's absolutely perfect in every single way. If I was someone who had never made a tag before, seeing this would definitely make me want to have a go. It's beautiful, delicate, romantic and perfectly vintage'd! Thanks so much for playing with us! :o) xx
