TIO #75 - Birds

TIO # 75 - Birds

The theme this week over on Dragon's Dream TIO challenge is "birds, as you will" and I am delighted to be on the "Dream Team" for Frankie along with some very talented crafters. So make sure you check out their blogs.

I have started with a cream blank tag over which I have placed a crafters workshop mask through which I have stippled mustard seed DI. I have them put the tag through my trusty cuttlebug with a creative expressions embossing folder. I have then lightly brushed over the raised design with tumbled glass DI then applied a pale blue mica powder while the ink was still wet. I don't know if you can catch the shimmer, but it looks lovely irl.

I then cut a piece of acetate the same size as my tag and stamped a selection of penny black and lavinia stamps over it. Finally, using my new paper artsy stamps and dies, I stamped and cut out the cage and bird onto grunge paper and coloured them with the same DIs.  The sentiment is also from paper artsy. Lastly, I have added a blue feather and ribbon, ricrac and fibres from my stash.

Thanks for stopping bye. As always, I appreciate your comments. Please do check out the inspiration from my fellow Dream Team friends and then post your entry over on the Dragon's Dream TIO challenge blog.
