"LIBERTY" and Justice for ALL.

Hi my friends, 
Just finished the punchin' part and the final finish is yet to come. This is my "LIBERTY" hang tag design. 
The first picture shows it without a tea dye. 

Me, being a fan of primitive stuff that looks olde and worn, 
I went and tea stained it... that's the 2nd picture.
 So now you know. Would you prefer it before or after? At this point I have no choice and I am happy with the after.
Can you see the seed beads I added in the strawberry? 
Those are french knots for the 13 stars which 
I did not stain in the after. 
It measures 6" tall and 2 3/4" wide. 
Used Valdani threads for all of it.
Will have a pattern for this in the very near day or two or so. 
I have some other patriotic designs available on my
Come and visit. 
 Enjoy with Folk Art Hugs, and much Peace,
Barb ...

As with all my waffling, I like the brightness of the red and yellow in the first one but the white toned down in the second. How's that?

Hi Marly, Thanks my friend for the comment... It would be a boring world if we all liked the same stuff.

Simply beautiful! With this particular design, I like the after. Looks like just the right amount of prim! :-)

Thanks so much Sharon... I prefer the more prim too. Good thing cause I can't go back.
Hope your weather is warmer. We will be 70 and windy...Can do without the wind.

Have a great day, Barb
