Distressed Frame

I had just received some awesome chipboard product from Words or Whatever and Flourish with a Bling in Australia and when I got the beautiful Authentique papers I knew just what to do.  I made this fun wall hanging for my house that has distressed tags with fun vintage images on them.  I used a large chipboard frame, traced it down on the Authentique paper and then hand cut so that it would show through the back of the frame.  I then added May Arts (BT96 and EA06) ribbon around the frame on the lower left  and a strip of 398-25-33 along the bottom to make a pocket before adhering it down on the paper.  I also strung Jute 363-10 on the tags.
I then added a chipboard banner from Words or Whatever , pearls from Flourish with a Bling, wood heart buttons from Blumenthal Lansing Buttons using SM-08 for the centers.  I colored all the chipboard and wood hearts with Distress Stain (fired brick, wild honey)
