Monochromatic Vintage Love Tag

Nancy of Sugar Lump Studios is providing us with some awesome prompts and samples in her 14 Hearts.  Day One was a fabulous altered cigar box filled with tags and cards.  See it HERE where I linked up my tag.

Here is my take on the tag:

I chose this beautiful image of my mother and instead of a vintage label or card, I went with this Basic Grey sentiment.  Rather than a printed butterfly, I used this special crocheted butterfly with paper rose and pearls handmade by my cyber friend Cathi from Ireland.  To balance the crochet and the dark center, I chose a dark brown crocheted trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon

Instead of vintage script and music papers, I used my new background stamps from  Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC:  Behind the Scenes stamp plate.  I stamped Handwriting in Coffee Archival Ink directly onto a manila tag.  I followed Nancy's prompt to use a scallop at the top of the tag--I stamped Handwritten Music Sheet onto a lighter beige card and punched a scallop circle with my Stampin' Up punch.

Other materials:
Ranger Distress Ink Marker: Vintage Photo for edging
Simplicity Pearl trim
