Lady Lace Card and Tag

Hello and welcome! Sorry about being a bit quiet this week, it was a busy week, I didn't even manage to get my CSI layout done. Today I have a tag and a card to share, made with Darkroom Door's new Lady Lace Collage stamp.
This is such a lovely stamp and the collage stamps are perfect for quick projects, since they cover quite a bit of paper and immediately become the focal point. Here I stamped it with Archival Jet Black on a tag die cut from white cardstock. The image was coloured with Pan Pastels, aiming for a soft look. I also used the pastels to colour the edges of the tag. 
Smear Black Soot Distress Ink on your craft sheet, mist once with water and pick up with a paint brush. Tap the handle of the paint brush to splatter ink on the tag, for a great distressed look. The tag was finished with tissue tape and a tassel die cut from patterned paper. To continue the music theme, I stamped the Music Background stamp on the strip of paper wrapped around the top of the tassel.
I also made a card, using similar techniques. Lady Lace was stamped on white cardstock and again coloured with Pan Pastels and splattered with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. It was mounted on a piece of crumbled up Kraft Glassine paper and a ledger patterned paper which was first stamped with the French Script Texture stamp and the Coffee Stain stamp.

I stamped a sentiment from Gum Trees on a die cut banner. For an embellishment, I made an rosette flower out of patterned paper.

Thank you for looking! Enjoy your weekend!
