B is for Bird - UKStampers Challenge

Afternoon peeps :O))

Blimey, what a week! I am just about feeling better after whatever this bug is that I have had...still feel really tired but I have at last managed to get into my room of stash today....and this is what I made:

B is for Bird Tag

This tag is my entry to the UK Stampers challenge which this week is ... B for Birds!




I used Grungepaper to make a tag base, coloured it with Distress Inks and then added some extra detail using a Tim Holtz mask - and then using Grungeboard shapes, I made the embellishments. I coloured these with the same Distress Inks and then used one of the new clear cling Tim stamps to stamp a little detail onto the shapes...don't think this shows up too well on the piccies though...cos I covered it all in Distress Stickles!! LOL

The little tickets are from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology range and are Adage Tickets, I just added my own Distess Inks to make them match.




I used a gold Krylon pen (I just can't craft without one!) to change the colour of the metal embellies that I added to the tag and threaded some ribbon thru the hole I had punched in the top.

Thanks for looking and I hope that I will be back to normal soon - the Sunday Stamper will have a new theme set on 17th May.....hope to see you then!
