Tag Tuesday-Guest Hostess

While Louise is taking a little breather this week, I am so pleased to be your hostess for Tag Tuesday.
I hope you will have fun using the mannequin template. Here is the link again to the template at Mirkwood Designs: Mannequin Template.


For this tag, I glued a couple of vintage ads to the mannequin shape. Over that I added a layer of tissue from a dressmaker's pattern, inked the edges and added faux stitching. The gal with the tiny waist is from a vintage ad and was colored with chalk. The thread wrapped card and the "Material Girl" are stamps from Crafty Secrets. This is a 5 inch tag.



The background of this 6 1/4 inch tag was made by spraying Glimmer Mist on a used dryer sheet, adhering to the tag with Studio multi-medium by Claudine Hellmuth and then dry embossing with an embossing folder. I then added the image, beads, and a flower made from the leftovers of the dryer sheet.

I hope that my tags have inspired you to take the challenge this week. As an added incentive, one lucky person will receive an RAK from me...a package full of goodies! I'll post the winner next Monday. So be sure and link up your creation at Tag Tuesday.

Beautiful tags Sarah! The template is one I have been wanting to try for some time now. I would have never guessed that you used a dryer sheet on the second tag for the background or the flower...great idea!!
