In between making 'cheap & cheerful' items for the Spring Fair, was the need to just play, so that's what I did with this tag which is also this week's challenge at Stampotique - Handles, Hinges, Buckles, Fasteners, Pulls.
My first idea was to use a zipper and I was hoping there may have been an old one in Mum's button tin, but alas it was not to be (sigh), BUT there were a number of old belt buckles which would have come off dresses many years ago. This one caught my eye as it was a lovely bright sort of 'peacock feathers' colour and as I rummaged through my ribbons I thought the contrast would certainly stand out with this spotty one.
The background colour is a combination of Distress Inks 'peacock feathers', 'fired brick' and 'mustard seed' blended together with a touch more peacock feathers around the edges.
Next I stamped "Gibi", coloured her with Distress Markers and did some fussy cutting before popping her up on dimensionals. I attached the ribbon, added the words and finished with a washi tape ribbon.
I'm entering Gibi in this week's challenge at Stampotique.
