Coquette Digital Stamp Set- Gecko Galz
French Connection Stamp Set- Gecko Galz
Elastic Lace Trim
Scattered Straw & Picket Fence Distress Paint
Hot Glue Gun
Homemade Mod Podge-(Elmer's Glue & Water)
I altered my paint brush using Gecko Galz New February Coquette Kit, and Pretty Victorians Collage Sheet.
I printed them out on light yellow paper instead of white card stock. Working with paper makes it easier to apply when creating a collage on a shaped object like a paint brush.
I tore different sized pieces of paper from the collage sheets, using a mixture of Elmer's glue & water to adhere to paint brush in a collage fashion. I let that dry, and added the Pretty Victorians ladies.
I used distress paint in scattered straw, applying it to the bristles of brush and randomly on my background collage paper, to give it more of a vintage ephemera feel! I burned the edges around the paper to outline the words "Coquetry" & "Vintage" (I love the look this gives to a vintage themed project!)
I wrapped an elastic lace trim piece on brush handle & adhered it with a hot glue gun. The fun part...embellishing! I used found items from my stash.
A lace mesh material was tied to create a hanger.

Coquette Digital Stamps- Gecko Galz
French Connections Digital Stamps-Gecko Galz
Black Soot Distress Paint
Grunge Board Piece
Black Yarn Material for Hanger
I created a collage for my tags background using the different digital stamps from Gecko Galz New February Coquette Kit.
Black soot distress paint was brushed on to create a background shadow, before placing the elegant image of the french woman down. This was done to make her stand out more.
Pop dots were used on the Paris Sign & Paris London 1912 stamp.
I applied a small piece of grunge board colored with black soot distress paint to use under the sentiment, (Style is a simpler way of saying complicated things).
The entire tag was then inked with black soot distress paint.
Black yarn material was used for tags hanger.
