G for Grand

Start of another month! Another challenge at The ABC Chsllenge we've reached G and this month our theme is Grand.  We'd like to see anything but a card.

Our sponsor for the next couple of weeks is Magnolia-liscious.  I was very undecided for a while what to make for my inspiration this time, in the end I've gone for a tag.
I've used Tilda with a little present coloured with Copics and ProMarkers. I wanted a distressed background. To achieve this I've used inks from Tim Holtz.  Antique linen, vintage photo and spun sugar.

Before mounting the image into the tag I've used some embossing enamel.

At the bottom of the tag is a piece of cotton lace.  I then added the pink and white flowers from Hobbycraft.  The fabric fibres are various different ribbons and embroidery thread.

Looking forward to seeing your grand creations Andrea x
