Ode to Purple

This weeks theme on Tag Tuesday is 'Purple'
If you know me you will know that it is a favourite of mine
 and I'm drawn to it a lot in my work.
I love purple and I enjoyed sifting through my stash of
 purple fabrics, ribbons, buttons & beads to make this little sparkly tag
I used Two layers of purple cotton velvet a piece of distressed satin edged organza ribbon
 This created some interesting areas to add beads and embroidery. 
I made a cord for the tie from the Caron variegated embroidery thread

Tag: Card base, cotton velvet
Embellishments: Organza ribbon, shell heart button,
glass seed beads, crystals, pearls, french knots and bullion knots.
Tie: Embroidery thread twisted cord.

Gorgeous little tag! I bought daughter M a jar of purple buttons for her birthday - scrummy colour. I love the upcycling below - fab 60's look. x Jo
