Birthday Tag

I didn’t get to make my hubbie a birthday card this year and he’d had his present a little while ago – a garden camera for capturing stills and video of the wildlife in the garden, so instead I decided to put together a vintage tag for him.
Background is spritz and flick and then I’ve added lots of little bits and pieces many of which were just laying around my desk or in little plastic boxes (you know the bits you save just in case lol). The one tiny heart was punched from an oddment of card given Tim's rusted enamel treatment.
A strip of paper from a workshop card I am in the process of designing, a small oddment of tissue wrap, the film strip left over from I don’t know where. Part of one of the District Market tags I was keeping, the crown stamped when I made my take on Tim’s July tag and a tab I cut from the tiny tabs and tags last week.
The strip of patterned paper was inked, covered with multi medium and dipped in rock candy dry glitter.
The frame cut from corrugated card some while ago as was the sentiment, the vintage photo from Tim’s paper stash again left from another project and mounted on a vial label.
The key and nib from my supplies. Some remnant rubs and chit-chat stickers.
Phew just got it made in time.

Happy Birthday Ken.

I’ll be back again tomorrow with my make for the new challenge at Country View Challenges and again on Friday for the start of the second challenge at Crafts-Too Challenge You (C2CU), what a busy week.

Enjoy the rest of the week. I am off to Lanzarote tomorrow with all the family for two weeks in the hot sun.

Thanks for visiting and sharing in my projects.
