Playing Valentine Tag & Bingo

I made this fabric tag
for a swap in our
Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group...
using very old
textiles, laces and trims.
The only element that is faux vintage
is the brass heart charm.
All pieces are hand-sewn.
Over at
we swapped altered vintage bingo cards
for Valentine's Day. 
I made this valentine
by lightly streaking the bingo card with gesso,
then layering a paper heart doily
and that sweet image.
I highlighted with liquid pearls
and created a head piece of
lace, pearls and a flower.
Two absolutely gorgeous lace trims
are layered to complete the piece.
It has a vintage seam binding hanger.
Here are some vintage image freebies for you
 to take and use
as we officially begin Valentine's week.

 Will return with more soon.
Have a wonderful week!
