Mom...U R tagged!

Hello Crafters..
Today's project is all about some tags that I altered...these are all tags that came with some clothing purchase. I just loved the size and the shapes of them all and decided to make a wall d├ęcor out of it!
 I was also exited about using the CLD dies that I won recently and decided to make a keepsake for my mom.
Have a look....

The base of all the tags are papers from old novels, which I have gesssoed to mellow down the paper print.
 The 1st tag has a lovely floral image stamped using Inkadinkado stamps and have used my markers to color them.
CLD mini doily, oriental Lamp post, quills and cuties die have been used and have just stamped the sentiment "best friend " here...a row of pink bling on one side brightens the whole tag!

The 2nd tag, I have retained a scalloped circle frame that I have heat embossed in black and the sentiment says it all...so kept the embellishment simple with a CLD Shasta daisy,Olive branches and small angel wings die.
The vintage look here is complete with crystal bling!

The last tag, I have used another stamp from the same Inkadinkado set which is colored and floral spray is using CLD cuties and butterfly using small angel wings die. The cute little stamp with the sentiment is using the Whimsy stamps and I just love the quote!
I then took an old earring whose partner was missing and made a chunky charm out of it by adding more charms and attached all the tags with pearl strings and my "mother's day" wall hanging was ready!
 The edges of all the tags are distressed with scissors and inked with distress inks to give a slightly worn out look.

A simple and colorful gift made with loots of love and care for my mother...isn't it perfect????

Just let me know your view on this...Thank you so much for stopping by.
