3 Tags and a canvas

Well, I still can't keep my fingers from making tags. Used 3 large manila tags - which I bought here in the lovely craft shop in Bad Honnef- and distressed and stamped them in the usual manner with lots of lovely TH distress inks. They have been decorated once again with everything-within-reach. The wings have been stamped, distressed, treated with crackle paint and then cut out by hand. The blue-grey key and keyhole, on the right card, are TH die-cuts, which have been distressed with *stormy skies*, and then treated with crackle glaze before putting on a thin gold border with a gold leaf pen. The canvas is 30 x 24 cms, and has been distressed with matching colours & glazed with mod-podge before using some gold leaf round the edges. I have left the gold leaf rather rough to give it a worn look. Then I fixed the tags to the canvas, added a few prima flowers and some TH metal foliage, and a metal key and key-hole. I'm not quite satisfied with it yet, so may still do some alterations.
