V is for Vintage

Did I mention that the tag swap at Chocolate Baroque seems to be more difficult now we are getting to the end letters of the alphabet?  I decided eventually to go for a fairly obvious one here and chose VINTAGE - using the Haberdashery stamps. The dress form was stamped onto a scrap of patterned paper and cut out so that I could layer it.  Background is again from Tim Holtz vintage shabby collection overstamped with smaller stamps from the set.  Of course I had to add a piece of cream lace from my trimmings scraps and made a dimensional flower with some of the backing paper using a Studio 490 stamp. Only four more letters to go now and I will have a beautiful and varied collection of twelve tags by the end of the year.


  1. This is gorgeous Val, I love how you've stamped the background and the flower is lovely.

  3. Great tag and I love that flower. Can't wait to see what you come up with for X,Y and Z! Have a great weekend, hugs Buttons x

  4. Er...... fancy that ......mine's vintage too but utterly different - mind you it might decide to morph again before I've finished doing battle with it. I love that flower - very nice indeed & the lace adds a lovely touch to it too.

  5. Beautiful tag Val. Love the colours you've used - so pretty and fresh. Think you should make a calendar and have one tag per month so you can enjoy them all over again.
