April or 4th Tag of 12

Ah, procrastination. Gotta love it. Here's my tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012 - April. I didn't have the die, so I used the elegant flourish and the bird from the caged bird die cut. Somewhere along the way I forgot to color his little wing, and when I went back to do it, I couldn't get the colors remotely close. Oops. No wing for my birdee. Oh well, the crown probably keeps him from flying!

Although I can't believe I'm actually going to say this out loud, because I'm sure it will put a giant jinx on things, I'm feeling pretty comfortable with blending inks after completing Creative Chemistry. Now, colors on ribbons, that's another thing. But I think yes, it's about the layers. I started with Scattered Straw, added some Wild Honey, and then finished up with Tea Dye Stain. I actually used a fair amount of Tea Dye Distress Ink on the tag too, and it was like finding a  new color...which I already owned. I added some music and a flower just cause I thought such a regal birdee would be singing in a garden. That, and I thought it was a bit empty on the bottom.

  1. Oh this is gorgeous! I'd best get cracking as tick tock... it is the 27th already.


Thanks so much for leaving a few's so much fun to get feedback! Here's wishing you sunny skies (at least proverbially!)
