And sew it goes...

Hi and happy Friday! Gayle here, and my post this week is a tag using the 'Sewing Mends The Soul' stamp set by Indigo Blu - this week I was thinking ribbons and vintage!

 The tag is coloured with Antique Linen Distress Stain with spiced marmalade, fired brick and frayed burlap Distress Ink, and a Tim Holtz script stamp in the background.
I stamped part of the sentiment above the sewing machine and part on the right side of the tag so I could frame it with an Idealogy book plate, which I filled with glossy accents.  I added some gold Stickles to the sewing machine stamp and some sewing embellishments around the bookplate.
 To finish off, I threaded ribbon through the tag hole and tied in a bow, and added on some white lace and ric-rac trim to match.

Thanks for visiting today!  You can find all the supplies I used at the very lovely The Stamp Attic :)
By the time you read this I will be far far away on my hols, so will wish you some sunshine wherever you are :)

Gayle xx
