TIO Fabricate and use words!

Here's my offering for this weeks TIO Challenge Fabricate and use words.
The tag is inked up in a mixture of antique linen, wild honey, brushed corduroy and black soot distress inks. I found a box of bits left over from a HOTP TSV many moons ago, and inside was the printed twill along with a small sheet a mica. Gave the twill a hint of colour with antique linen pad, and added the mica to the bottom corners of the tag using crafters companion stick and spray.
The stamp is one I bought a few years back at Port Sunlight from Stamp Camp, and was stamped out in black soot distress ink. Can you tell I'm ready for summer and the beach! Elizabeth xx

This is just so evocative! I love the image (I have one similar) and just looking at it reminds me of my Eleanor when she was little. A beautiful tag and stamping on the twill tape is a lovely touch.
