Tag on Tag

Hi everybody!

It's time for a new theme again, time flies by so quickly from week to week.

I have made a tag on tag on tag this time.

The top layer has been made with speciality stamping card from LaBlanche. I distressed the background with DIs in tumbled glass, Victorian velvet and wild honey. The background stamps are from TH, as is the large bird, which I stamped on an extra piece of card and fussy cut. I used archival black which I clear embossed. The small birds have been made with a Martha Stewart punch. I gave the bird a collar made of fibres, and a bell saved from an Easter bunny. (I only buy them to get the bells, and then have to sacrifice myself and eat the chocolate so as not to be wasteful!)

I mounted the top tag onto a slightly larger one cut from black card. The background card has been cut from an old box, painted with gesso, and then smeared with Utee gold into which I stamped. I made a matching tie out of the rest of the pretty fibres, and added some gem stones, pearls and a feather as embellishments.

Looking forward to seeing your tag on tags!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
