Hello My Friend
Hello stamping friends. I hope that each and every one of you has a great start to the weekend! I am coming to you with a tag that I have made for one of my friends who recently celebrated her birthday.
As my inspiration I chose a tag I had spotted on Pinterest and the rest is history, LOL!
For the base of my tag I chose medium weight chipboard and attached card stock on the back of it and DCWV Designer Paper the Primrose pad on the front, well, which was all covered up in the process! ;D
I've used the birdcage and bird by Tim Holtz, painted them with shimmer paint and added a piece of white crochet lace to the bottom of the birdcage. Since the bird was eye-less, I gave her a tiny pearl eye and attached her with some foam tape. Around the sides and bottom of the tag I added various pieces of lace I had laying on my desk and then the fun began with LOTS of flowers. I have also used some metal on this all decked out tag in form of a painted key, a butterfly, wire and pearl/crystal sprays and two bling piecesand a filigree piece I painted with Gesso. Some seam binding and a sentiment tag cut with the Antique Labels and Border die by Our Daily Bread Designs. The sentiment is also from Our Daily Bread Designs and is from the Sentiment Collection Two.....love this set! And to finish it off I sprayed the entire tag with homemade shimmer spray. I really wish my camera would pick it up.
And here is my tag
