Tag Tuesday - Bunting and Flags

This is my take on the Tag Tuesday Bunting and Flags Challenge.  I am playing along and one day hope to be a fully paid up member!!

I didn't realise how time has flown and I missed the Found Objects Tag so I may do that next as I am having fun.

I made ATCs for a swap on Wednesday and my tag is a bigger version of the same design.

I used acrylic paint to transfer my Big Ben image to my tag and then roughly sketched over the image.  (There is a tutorial that talks you through how to do the a acrylic paint transfer technique on my Blog so follow the link if you want to know how.)  I added a touch of royal gold to the edges of my tag and its red tag frame with embossing powder.

I have been having fun making baby bunting.  I printed out some pennant flags and then cut them out and strung them together with red embroidery thread.  I just had to include and English Red rose on my design and I recently bought the 'Made in Britain' ribbon so that was a must to embellish this patriotic tag.

I added a quote that I have seen in a few places now but I cannot tell you who had the idea to alter the original war time quote.  Fab idea though who ever came up with it.

To top it all off a gold embossed crown with patriotic crown jewels.  A little glossy accents and more patriotic jewels to embellish the London Eye.

I photographed my tag on the cover of a Coronation Scrap Book - You wouldn't believe its age looking at it.  It is full of cuttings from the newspapers of the day.  I only wish the person who made it had thought to write their name on it.  I managed to pick up two of these scrap books and some fab commemorative magazines for the bargain price of 50p each.

I know my tag is slightly Jubilee too which is next weeks theme but I think I will be making another tag.  I might be able to use some images from my fab find on this one!
