Spring in fashion

Now I am not sure if this will be ok but I am thinking of entering it in the Crafty individuals April challenge...Spring in fashion. Well it is spring in my garden with all the lovely birds so as the only stamp I have from Crafty Individuals is all bird cages I thought I would give it a go. you can read about the challenge HERE

I inked a tag using bundled sage, tumbled glass and broken china distress inks. I stenciled the grass using peeled paint, and stamped text and wire stamp randomly using broken china on the top of the tag.

I stamped the bird cage and the birds from CI 329 using black archival and painted the bird with distress ink.
I stamped the sentiment 'fly my little songbird' from the same set, cut it out and used foam squares to attach to the tag. I distressed the tag and edged it with black soot, coloured some seam binding ribbon with ink to match. I mounted it onto black card to finish it off.

Thank you for stopping by....
