DragonsDream- TIO - with a twist

Hello and welcome back for a new round of challenges from the Dragons... we're still sticking with recipes, but each one will have a twist this time, just to make it harder for you (and us, ha ha!) Thanks to everyone who entered last time!

This time, Elizabeth wants us to include a GAME of your choice on your tag, and the recipe, is Vintage, Buttons and Lace.... good luck..

I don't mind telling you, it took me ages to work out how to include a game on my own tag, Then I remembered some of Tim's Lost and Found paper stack languishing in my paper supply... and the game was discovered - Hide and Seek...Here's my tag.
 I used Distress Inks for my vintage element - Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, and Vintage Photo - spritzing some water on the tag before drying it off.

I blended some Vintage Photo and Black Soot round the edges of the tag, and my doors...

Sewed the buttons onto the doors, and the stamps which were from a Paperartsy Ink and the Dog plate (Gentlemen 4) stamped in Black Soot.
Cut two of the little vintage photos from the Lost and Found paper stack and stuck them to the tag, then fixed the doors over them, to hide behind.

I spritzed a piece of lace with some perfect pearls/copper reinker mix to finish the recipe.

Hope you like our new twist on the recipes, and come over to DragonsDream Tag It On to see my other teamie's makes, and join in!

What a wonderful idea for the game - your hide and seek flaps are very clever, and I love the spritzy background and great vintage photos.
