Paper Sweeties Post Release Inspiration

Happy Saturday and welcome to the Paper Sweeties post inspiration...post! Today the Sweeties' are providing some more lovely samples using this month's Tea-Time inspired collection. Here is a tag that I made featuring Join Me for Tea! and Abigail:

Abigail is colored in with Copics and her dress is paper pieced with the coordinating Maja Design Ska vi ta en fika papers. The edges are sponged and distressed and I cut down the top center of the tag, distressed those edges and peeled down the layers to reveal the backside of the paper. In order to do this easily, I lightly sprayed the paper with some water, manipulated it to the way I wanted it and then let it dry. Abigail is perched on top of a white paper doily, a strip of crochet lace that has lilac twill snaked through it, some Zva Creative crystals and lots of flowers. I stamped the sentiment from Join Me for Tea and cut out groupings of words, then attached them sporadically on the tag. Lastly, I tied the Alphabet twill to the top with some hemp and a small locket charm.
