The theme at Tag Tuesday this week is 'Eggs'
I enjoyed working with the sheet music on the eggs last week so much ,
I decided to keep the theme the same for my egg tag
I cut an egg shape from some sheet music and stitched it onto a black card background which I had printed and embossed on cut it into a tag shape and punched a hole at the top.
I was quite pleased with the result and proceeded to put the ribbon through, at this point the top of the tag ripped off... the ribbon was too thick.
I was talking with Kevin at this point and he remarked at how calmly I had taken this setback.
It was all replaceable, but sometimes these things can be happy accidents and meant to be.
So rather than start again, I cut round the torn black tag, giving the egg a second border which highlighted the black stitching.
I then stitched this onto one of my pink spotty tags
which had thin ivory lace wrapped round it.
I added a shiny large black sequin and on top of that a white iridescent sequin
then topped these with a diamante stone.
I added more lace round the egg and punched black flowers with tiny pearl glass seed beads.
The ribbon is from a lovely box of handmade chocolates that Kevin bought me a couple of years ago.
