Vintage tag swap - The Vintage dressform tag

Hi there everyone!

A little while ago i participated in a vintage tag swap hosted by my friend Martica over in the states. She allways throws such fun and fabulous swaps. I`m not allways able to join in but this time i had some spare time to join. There is a lot of pics so i will post the three tags in separate posts.

First post up is the Vintage dressform tag. 

I used a large manila tag #10 and covered it with papers from Maja Design, Vintage Summer Basics.
The chipboard frame is embossed with white embossing and while still warm i sprinkled some pink micro beads onto it so it would adhere in the embossing enamel. I was really happy about how it turned out. This frame is a bigz dies from Sizzix.

I left the dressform-chippie plain as i thougt it was the right look for this tag.

 As i assembled the tag i used some digital tags i bought online from a company called "By Digital Paper". They have so much gorgeous shabby chic/vintage digital ephemera and stuff :-) You can see them behind the dressform stamped image. (The ones with the bird and the flowers.)

A little tip for you all. When you want to make some space between all your layers, it is great to use scraps of chipboard instead of the expensive foam tape. When i buy chipboard i allways save the scraps so i can use them behind images or other embellishments. So it`s a great way to create some dimension to your project. It also makes your project more sturdy. 

Thanks for taikng the time to visit. Hope you liked my first tag. Stay tuned and tomorrow i will show you the next tag i have created for this swap.
