The Elements Collection - Megs Garden

Hi there everyone,
Today I have created for you all a card and framed tag project.
Using the some of the new Vintage Elements packets from Meg's Garden.
I just love vintage images and could not wait to play
with these elements.
First, is 2 vintage tags which I framed inside
inside a Kaisercraft  beyond the page photo frame.

I applied gesso around the edges of frame and while still
wet I gathered pieces of muslin, using the gesso to adhere the muslin
to the frame, this gives a very shabby effect to it.
The background paper inside each pocket is the
 Dusty Pink Roses P6341 - The Rose Garden collection available
from Meg's Garden

Vintage Frame

The tags are covered with the Music sheets and Old Writing 1 - P2061 papers
which are NEW available from Meg's Garden website

Close up of Vintage Lady Tag

I covered the tag with the Old writing paper
stamped the La Blanche fence and lightly coloured
with distress markers
Cut image and ornate tag then
place the image inside the tag
I then adhered photo corners around
the Ornate tag.

Materials all from Meg's Garden website for the Vintage Beauty tag
Vintage tags elements 1031 (NEW)
Vintage Beauty images
La Blanche Stamp
German border scrap
Cream Lace
Paper Flowers - Asssorted Flowers
Silver Diamonte Trim
Pearl drop Jewels

Close up of Vintage Child Tag

I covered the tag with the Music sheet , inked around the whole tag
I fuzzy cut the ornate tag and place the photo
image of the french child inside
cut out the flowers and bird from collage sheets
The leaves were stamped with Black ink
then I coloured each one with Distress Inks. They
look like real leaves with all the fine lines and details.

Materials for the Vintage Child tag
Vintage French Girl 2 ATC034
Vintage Ornate Tags 1036 (NEW)

applied Glass glitter to the chipboard, so vintage I think :)
