Marie Antoinette Tags

After the ATCsyesterday, time to show you the Marie Antoinette tags, again made for a swap on the Marie Antoinette Swap site. This time the tags had to be fabric and as I had made a large fabric background already I used this to make the tags too. The other requirement was to use either images of Marie herself or something Paris related. As you can see I used transparencies of the Eiffel Tower on two of the tags and 3 small fabric images of it on the other tag, combined with Marie. Of course, Marie Antoinette herself never got to see the Eiffel Tower as it was build well after her time in Paris, and she probably also never ate cupcakes but after the Marie Antoinette film they too are for ever associated with her, so I added them to the tags too in both a large image and in the shape of the yummy cupcake ribbon! Delicious. Some sparkly embellishments were the final touch.

These tags are completely different from the tags I made for Lenna's tag swap but I enjoyed making them just as much and I have to be honest and admit that the texture on these fabric tags lifts my heart just that little bit more than just mixed media ones. And (I'm whispering this!) I love the girly colours! Probably the reason I love the swaps on the Marie Antoinette group.
