Brag Monday--"Paris Rose" Tag

Hi Everyone,
This vintage style, mixed media tag has all the “bells and whistles” of this art genre. It contains images of a vintage Bingo card, a handmade rose created from graphics of a vintage church hymnal, as well as a metal brad holding a dangling circular tag.

The center image of the Eiffel Tower is from the Graphics Fairy. The bottom edge is trimmed in delicate ecru-toned, coffee-stained lace. This large 3” X 5” tag could adorn a lamp, be placed inside of a book for display, or be that “extra” touch in a romantic boudoir. The rose, which is 3” in diameter, is the focal point of the piece. This tag has just been placed in my Etsy shop.

I am linking this up to Brag Monday at the Graphics Fairy!

Your tag is so Paris artsy! Lucky you to have won such lovely jewelry. Is that your metal dress-form? I have one very similar to that and I love it.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment on my blog.

What a gorgeous tag! No wonder you won the necklace! You are so talented! Looking forward to hoping over to your etsy shop! I'm going to become your newest follower!
PS I don't think my follow button worked at my site... would you please try again! That will make you my 50th!!

Ann Nichols said...

Hi Cindy!
That is amazing how your ended up in New Orleans!
By the by, my follow button worked this time and you are now my 50th follower! Thanks! I've only recently discovered blogging and I love it! You asked where I live? Well, at the "moment" God has "planted" me in Greece! (I used to live in Ft. Walton Beach Florida though and was often a visitor to New Orleans. It's fabulous!)You can't see it but behind the cameraman taking the picture of my profile picture is a huge castle from the middle ages. Greece has so much to offer (fabulous scenery, climate and people) but it's its history that I love the most.
So glad to have you in my blogging world!
