I liked the simplicity of this but wanted to take it a step further, so I made a mask for the bird and then used the Tim Holtz, 'Rays', layering stencil with Scattered Straw Distress Ink, applied with a blending tool.
I couldn't resist adding a little more stencilling and used the new Latticework Layering Stencil with Antique Linen Distress ink, in the lower half of the tag. I also stamped out the text from the stamp set. I still hadn't had enough, so I turned my attention to the bird. I decided to give it a bit of dimension and pulled out an off cut of Wendy Vecchi Clearly For Art, that had been on my table since Christmas! I stamped the bird onto a piece of manila card with black Archival Ink and used Distress Markers to add a little' bird-like' colour. I also stamped it onto the Clearly for Art and cut it out. I used my heat gun to shape the bird and then adhered the stamped manila card bird, to the surface with Studio Matte Medium. I used dimensional tape to attach it to the tag.
To finish off, I added a printed out sentiment popped up on dimensional tape, a little lace border and of course... a dyed seam binding ribbon bow. Oh! and a few tiny eggs. I stamped out one of the larger speckled eggs with Wendy's Archival Ink in 'Hydrangea' and used it to cut out three little ones, well I thought it was a pretty good idea ! So there you have it, another tag to add to my collection ! Until next time, 'Happy Crafting' x
