Vintage Tag for Tag Tuesday

This , well I should say last Tuesdays tag Tuesday's challenge theme was Vintage. This is what I have done.

The base fabric is a gold dupiont silk with a layer of some most beautiful brocade silk that was kindly given to me by a very dear frien from England. I then added a vintage picture from some scrapbooking paper. The picture had a picture of a cameo on it & I just happened to have a real cameo the same size. It was a marrage made in heaven ☺ I have had the cameo for years & always wondered what I would use it for. I have also added a vintage type flower made from scrunched up brown paper that I have destressed with Tim Holtz inks, & added a sparkly brad in the centre.

At the top of the tag I have embroidered some silk ribbon, gathered French knot roses.

Next Tuesday's (which will be tomorrow here in Australia) tag tuesday theme is "Lace." So watch this space. I will be addeding the lace tag today.
Warm Hugs
