EAD Designs Color Challenge #21 ~ Black and White

Good Morning Everyone!!
It is time for another EAD Designs Color Challenge!!

 Black and White
and check out these awesome coordinating stickerz~

For my project I stepped outside my norm and wanted to give a it a go on creating a vintage inspired tag

I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut Cartridge for my tag base
cut at 3 1/4 x 6
The beautiful background stickerz from EAD Designs that I attached to my tag and cut to size.
I ran my Tim Holtz distresser around the edges to age it alittle more

For the "Antiques" stickerz I attached it to a piece of heavily distressed white card stock that I sprayed with
silver glimmer mist
When it was all dried I used Tim Holtz corners to hold it all in place

My flowers were some old ones I had in my stash that I also sprayed with glimmer mist
I used Tuxedo Black Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl Jam
and some beautiful lace that I received last year from a swap
I had some long Tim Holtz fasteners that I used through the bottom of my bird cage die and
I made some stick pins using beads again from my stash.
As my ideas were spinning for this project I remembered receiving this awesome bird cage and bird that Karen sent me a long while back cut out of a coke cool is that?
Well I never really came up with an idea as to how to use it until now!
It is not old and antique-y but I love the look of it on my tag
To finish off my tag I added some bling :)
Antique White Crinkle Ribbon and some fun silver tinsel

I think the more I look at this the more I think it is a mix between old and new.
So how did I do with my first tag?
Now be wont hurt my feelings :)
