Grungy Monday #15/ Simon Says Show Us Some Stitches Combo

Only Tuesday and I have completed these two challenges for this week already and here is my rendition. Linda had us go to Tim's blog and use his technique on a Christmas tag for our background and then create a project with it. Well, this is one of my favorites, so loved it! I used worn lipstick and frayed burlap for the rusty enamel and decided to go with a sewing theme so I could incorporate SSSS challenge into this tag as well. They had us Show Them Some Stitches. I got out my machine and stitched on some ric-rac that I stained with my Distress stains. I then tied some black lace around the tag and added a Maya Road decorative stick pin into that. I embossed with black onto chipboard the dressform stamp of Tim's and fussy cut it out. folded for pleats and used tiny attacher to add the skirt of tulle. Then added a waistband from some velvet ribbon trim from my stash. Pop-dotted this on the edge and tied some tulle around the hole and frayed the ends by tearing.

Great minds think alike but you did real stitching. I am impressed. I used to sew but now I hate it. Your tag is lovely. The rick rack and velvet and netting add so much. Have a great week Kathy..Donna
