Crown Tag


I have made this tag for the *crown* challenge over at Gingersnaps - GC91
I have used a large manila tag, distressed with TH inks in gradient colours, and then stamped the background with a script stamp in forest moss.
The heart, crown and wings have been cut from chipboard using a TH die, distressed to match and stamped with *love* in different languages.

The charm is a metal one from LaBlanche, I tore the face out of an image and glazed it with glossy accents to make it more durable.
Was, as always , fun to make. Thanks for looking, have a great day and take care of yourselves.
