Good Luck and my first ever tag

Hi Everyone hope you have all had a good start to the week?

This fortnight's challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenge is Good Luck set by the lovely Sara 

Here is my take on it 

This is the first ever tag I have made and quite different in style to my usual girly cards covered in flowers lol,  but I'm quited please with how it turned out, I also have to say a big thanks to Stephanie-Emma  for cutting the tags out for me so I could try making then.  Thanks hun it was really kind of you :) 

To start with I covered my tag in news paper and then inked over it with my new old paper distress stain and edged the tag with vintage photo distress ink and some faux stitching which doesn't show up so well in the photo , I stamped the image which is from Creative Expressions on to newspaper stuck on card with the same ink and riped the edgeds to give it a distressed feel and again edged with the same ink to finish it off.

The wooden letters came from Cuddly Buddly  which I covered in old paper distress stain and over stamped in vintage photo distress ink, the buttons also came from here.

I hope you can pop across to check out the fab projects by the rest of the design team and also join us in the challenge.

Hope everyone has a fab week :)
