Tag Tuesday - Lace

Ooh la la.
Here is my lace contribution to Tag Tuesday for week 5.  
As you can see, I'm back to my signature colour purple  ;-)
I painted the tag with amethyst metallic and blue acrylic paint and then stamped some swirls, a London postmark and some script.  I covered this with black embroidered and sequinned lace.  My burlesque lady has been painted with amethyst metallic paint and inktense pencils.

Tag Tuesday - Week 4 - Vintage

My contribution for Tag Tuesday this week.
This is Barn-E, my lovely orange 1974 VW Beetle.
He is presently undergoing a full restoration
by my VW specialist husband, Carl.
I love them both to bits. x

Barn-E 'Work in Progress'
I can't wait until he's finished but
customer vehicles have to come first

This is Burn-E, my husband's work van.  
He's a 1974 German ex-Fire Service van

'White' tag - week 3

Here is my effort for Tag Tuesday

It's a white card tag with embellished inchies and 
fabric beads decorated with white, pearl and 
silver bugles, seed beads and silver wire.

To finish, I punched the corners with little hearts and
added white satin and organza ribbon

and purple bugle beads.

I finished the tag with some nail varnish,
a gold stamp and gold border

Tag Tuesday

Yay, I have joined Tag Tuesday 
It's great to see all the different styles and ideas everyone comes up with.

Here is my contribution.  I didn't have an actual luggage tag so I used a piece of lilac felt roughly the right size.  I then cut two pieces of cotton, one slightly smaller than the other, frayed the edges and machined them to the felt.  I embroidered snowflakes decorated with beads and finally added some sparkly organza ribbon. 
I'm quite please with how it turned out.
