Wanted to share some pictures of a tag that I made for the bird cage swap at Frankie's last month. I hadn't heard from the person that my tag went to that she had received it but decided she must have gotten it or I would have heard otherwise.
I used the Tim Holtz (TH) tag die to cut the tag then embossed it with a TH folder after using the wrinkle free distress technique to color it. The birdcage and bird are cut using the bird cage die and colored with the silver Adirondack® Metallics Acrylic Paint Dabber. Bird is colored with fired brick distress ink.
the floral ribbon is colored with Broken China Distress Stain and a silver dew drop placed in the center before gluing it to the birdcage. The sentiment is from TH and stamped on cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder then cut using a Stampin Up! punch. There is glass glitter "bird seed" in the little bottle.
I embellished the tag hole with Fun Fur and added a Word Stick, a key and a fob I made from a bead. The mulberry roses were tipped with Broken China Distress Stain.
Hope to be home next week from Spain and get settled in a bit so I can start playing in my craft room again by Thursday or Friday! I have enjoyed all the travels but since the first of September until now is a long time without all my toys to play with. Looking forward to creating lots of fun things that I have running around in my head. More later!
