Mid-Way Motivation - Vintage Childhood

Good morning everybody

This week is is my turn to produce the mid-week motivation piece.  I decided to produce a tag instead of  card, and basically it follows on from the theme I used for my DT card in the challenge on Monday.  I distinctly remember have a dress like this, and this was certainly me having been told off for doing something I should not have been - all innocent and butter wouldn't melt ....

I have used a Ranger tag and inked with peacock blue, tumbled glass and wild honey distress inks, brushing them on rather than with a blending tool as I wanted a soft background.  I stamped the little girl with brown Momento ink, masked her, and then stamps the Mason's jar around her.  The dress has been coloured with a distress pen .  Some swirls were stamped around the edge, and the edges finished off with distress ink in tea dye.  I roughly inked the lace with tea dye, and also the pink roses.  As i said a very simple piece of work.


  1. Stunning tag Jacqueline, love the little girl ands the mason jar is fab, is it from a set our one of your stamps?

  5. Gorgeous tag! The image is beautiful. Does this mean that we can make tags for MMM as well as cards?? I would love to know as I far prefer making tags to cards.

  6. Beautiful tag
    Love the images you used.

    Greetings Janny
