Creative Embellishments: Vintage Photo Tag

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here, and today I have a small vintage photo tag to share. I have all of the messy details to share below.

Creative Embellishments Chipboard Used:

Ornate Square Frames                         Small Family Border Word Set

Other Products Used:
Distress Ink Dauber- Tea Dye, Distress Spray Stain- Walnut Stain, Dyelusions Ink Spray- Black Marble, Distress Oxide Ink- Ground Espresso, Blending Tool, Water Mister, Lace, Gems, Large Tag, Light Grey Cardstock, Paper Distresser, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (Adhesive Dots Micro, 3D Foam Squares)

I started by matting my vintage photo in light grey cardstock and distressed the edges. Next take the large cream tag and begin distressing it. I used a combination of watered down mister ink, splatters and then heavily inking the edges of the tag to get my desired level of vintage charm.

I sprayed brown and black misters onto my craft mat and dipped both of my chipboard pieces into it, until they were completely covered. Let dry completely. Add the frame to the tag using adhesive dots, and the tag onto the frame using foam squares. Finally the “adore” chipboard word is added on top of the photo using adhesive dots.

I added final touches of lace to the top and gems on the frame for a little extra sparkle and texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Tracy
