I decided to make a tag with a vaguely autumnal feel to the background and added colour to the birds to make them stand out. No sentiment was added because quite honestly, I feel that they aren't always necessary.
Here's my tag featuring some Crafty Individuals birds:
|The background for the tag was created using foliage stamps and distress inks. The white leaves were stamped with brilliance ink.|
|Die cut lace was inked in the same colours as the tag. Two layers of clear embossing came next, followed by stamping with brilliance ink whilst the embossing powder was still molten.|
|The birds were layered onto corrugated card from a box I had. The card board was inked lightly with picket fence distress stain followed by walnut stain ink. Aged gold embossing enamel was then applied to various areas of the card.|
|Each bird image was stamped with archival ink then coloured with distress inks and a water brush.|
