Another Tag : Vintage Performer Tag

This burlesque lady in her pretty peach leotard was just too fun to pass up a chance to alter and place on a heart-themed tag!

Background for this tag is barn door distress stain, a damask stamp in red dye ink, some tattered angels glimmer mist in cork.

the oval is a cutout from a vintage newspaper I scanned and printed. 

The burlesque lady is a great Library of Congress poster image of a performer named Nettie Barton. I tried to find out more about her or the "High Rollers Extravaganza Co." with whom she performed, but could find sadly little. 

The brass butterfly and aluminum rose are both from my jewelry stash, as are the ribbons. A little seven gypsies paper and basic grey stick on numbers round things out.
