Tag with wallet - Listen to your heart

Look what the postman brought

I received this lovely tag and wallet from 'Momiji' as a thank you - she doesn't have a blog sadly so I can't add a link.

It has been created using K & Co materials - isn't it gorgeous - she also thought that it would give me some inspiration to try something different - and it did. I didn't have the K&Co papers - so I adapted it.

Here is my improvised version.

You would never believe that I photographed these on white paper would you -why it looks blue I do not know!

On a sheet of A4 pearlised paper, I printed out a backing sheet, and swiped over it in shades of yellows and greens. It has a nice shimmer all over it.

The darker shades of green are the clear embossed areas, the lighter shades of warm yellow have Cosmic Shimmer on them.

I cut out the templates - and I was off. I have made this over two afternoons.

The tag image I coloured to blend with the tag, and she is meant to be the older version of the young girl on the front. She is 'Listening to her Heart' as the sentiment implies.

I found a single pearlised yellow button that matched perfectly - and I stamped the image on top with Stazon. The butterfly is from a book of them which I bought from Crafty Individuals last year.

The ribbon holding the button on with the dual purpose of being a hanger - is cream organza and matches too, although it looks white in the photo.
The lace is vintage cotton - which I aged a bit more with ink

The little girl image I glued behind a scrap of plasma, it has a bit of Cosmic Shimmer around the edges which you can't see. Jo Capper Sandon used it to make a tag which was featured in February's Craft Stamper. I had never heard of it before - thanks Jo.

The quote stamp is a Tim Holtz one and I have clear embossed the stamping.

When I saw the serious image of this little girl I just had to use her - and the sentiment seemed befitting. So I found an image which looked similar for her to make the tag with!
