A Vintage tag

 Hi there! I have made another tag this week, and this time I have gone for a vintage vibe. Here is how I made it.

I began with a Dina Wakely size 10 mixed media tag. (I cut 2 cm from the bottom as I intend adding it to a journal page later.) 

I used a blending brush to apply distress oxide inks over the whole tag.
I splattered water and sprayed a little Distress oxide spray in wild honey across the tag. 
When it was dry I used the metalwork alpha 6x6 inkable to add the numbers top and bottom.
I stamped the dotty borders around the tag, 

then added the smaller stamp from the ledger measure down the left side.
I stamped the pocket watch stamp (no longer available, but there is a pocket watch a little smaller that you could stamp then cut out on the other Ledger measure stamp) onto a book page using versafine clair pinecone ink . I blended a little distress oxide ink on it to age it and cut it out. 

Using collage medium, I stuck it to the tag and left it to dry.
I stamped the Time sentiment in versafine clair ink onto a scrap of Dina Wakely collage paper and cut it out. 
I worked out where I wanted to place each part of the sentiment before sticking it down with more collage medium. 
Here is the finished tag with a gold mat and some lace and twine added.
This is what I used:
Pocketwatch stamp
Versafine Clair ink in Pinecone
Book page

Tomorrow, Bev and Sam are on The Craft Store at 1pm with some gorgeous new tag inkables that are a Must-have! Here is a sneaky peek at one of the samples. 

I will be doing a Try it out Tuesday takeover Facebook Live tomorrow evening at 8pm over on the Bee Crafty Facebook page. Hope you can join me! 
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments. They are very much appreciated.
