A tag of fabric

Louise challenged us with 'a bit of fabric' for Tag Tuesday.  It was a challenge I decided to skip, until my online friend Sue encouraged me to take the challenge.    She made a wonderful heart-shaped tag.

I have fabric....fabric that's older than my grown sons!  In fact, this tag is made with a piece of Hawaiian print that I bought in Honolulu in the early 1970's.   I adhered it with double-stick tape and accented it with a monoprint of alcohol inks and the Hero Arts 'Tropical Flower.'  Some silky ribbon, white circular clip and a string of pearls completes it.   Thanks for the double-challenge, Sue!  (My internet was out for half the day, so I'm even later than I planned.)

Wow, Evelyn, the colors are so brilliant! I'd love to have a skirt made from that wonderful fabric. And the alcohol inks are so gorgeous. Beautiful tag.

Evelyn, this is stunning....such vibrant color!
(It's hard using up that fabric when you've got so much paper you want to play with, isn't it?)
