OSCC Tag-You're it!

Good morning everyone-I hope its as sunny and lovely where you are as here! Its Saturday so new challenge day at One Stop Craft Challenge and our new theme is 'Tag, Youre it!' so we want you to create a tag or include a tag on your project. This is my first play with distress inks, and my lovely new Sepia accents and I have fallen in love! I found some great gift bags, 2 for 99p and so thought I would try making a matching gift set.
For this project I used Distress inks in Walnut, tea stain, and worn lipstick, paper, Kraft cardstock, coredinations black magic cardstock, sepia accents, glitter, glitter card, x-cut punch and My Minds Eye paper.
I started by printing some lovely vintage images from 'The Graphics Fairy' onto cardstock. I then glittered the main accents on the dress dummies with brown glitter. Next I covered with Sepia accents and left to dry.
Next I stained the paper with the inks-I used cut off pound shop make up sponges and I am impressed with the results-much cheaper than the tools they sell! I left them to dry.
I then cut a tag shape out of Kraft card and mounted My Minds Eye dark polka dot paper onto it. Then I found some scraps of coredinations cardstock and tore to show the gorgeous colour underneath. I placed this  on top of the MME papers and then covered with the inked paper. Next I added the Dressmaking dummies, and glitter butterfly. I then followed the same sort of layout for the bag but with larger embellishment and two of the butterflies and strips of coredinations cardstock. I hope you like it, I would love some feedback!
