Love, Beauty, Peace and Time

Over on the flickr group Art n Soul this month's challenge is to make a four page tag bug with the theme "Beautiful Buttons", I knew the stamps I wanted to use just had to buy them. So having landed on my doorstep yesterday morning, I set too with the challenge, only I'm afraid I can't bear to part with it as I love it so much. Going to have to make a different one.

I started off by making my own buttons, chipboard, embossed grunge and shrink plastic, there was tutorial in the December issue of Craft Stamper and printed off some of the Sewing Cards that were a freebie a while ago.

The new stamps I bought were a Creative Expressions set called "Vintage Sewing", I even did some sewing on one of the pages, it looks a bit childlike though sewing's not my forte. Oh well adds to the vintage look with the frayed edges of the Calico.

Distress inks were used, mostly Fired Brick, Barn Door, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye and Walnut Stain.

The image on the front is a fabulous Le Blanche stamp which I bought on Ebay for the grand sum of 99p. They are big foam stamps which I thought would be rubbish but are in fact really nice.

So here we have the front of all four tags

and the backs

My photography's as good as my sewing, it actually looks much better in real life.

Thanks for looking
