Well Michelle is back over on the Paper Artsy blog..and day 1 was the bluebird tag, and very nice it was too.
I more or less followed Michelle's instructions so won't go into it again, you can read it all Here. I don't have the birdcage that Michelle used so I used one from Kaisercraft.
I used a background stamp from MON1, and stamped in Vermillion and French ultramarine archival.
I then stamped the whole tag with tim holtz slight alterations in gold paint.
The verse is from Nature 1 plate. I then edged the tag with black archival and put it onto the black tag which I distressed and edged with a gold leaf pen.
Lastly I watered down some london bus and smoked paprika with a tiny bit of zesty zing, mopped it all up with some seam binding, scrunched it up and dried with my heat gun, then added it to the top of the tag.
