Distressed tags

Recently I have been decorating some tags to send as cards. All I use is normal Luggage tags. On the first tag I have used the distress inks called Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and Black soot. The Lace on the bottom of the tag has been sprayed with Tattered Angels Silver Glimmer mist. I made the satin lollipop flower myself using some off cuts of ribbon and the butterfly is off of a butterfly neckless that was reduced in Newlook, when I seen it I bought it to dismantle as there was 8 butterflies on it which I thought I could use as charms! The stamp is from A set from Dark room door. I then added some ribbons and feathers to the top to finish.On the tag below I used the Distress inks called, Antique Linen, Brushed corderoy and Vintage Photo. I then used a text stamp to stamp the background and then stamped my main image over the top. I made the Flower using extra wide satin ribbon. The Tim Holtz adage ticket has been distressed with the same coloured inks and then Ribbons and Fibres on the top to finish.

I purchased everything used here (apart from the Key and the purple satin on the first flower) from The craft room (Newton Abbot) The two Main stamps I used on both tags are from the same set.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
