I have popped a tag together for my entry this week. Mainly made up with "left-overs" that have been lurking on my desk for a while now - it was time to tidy up a bit you know. I started out by blending Antique Linen Distress Ink right over the top of the tag and then using Tim's Lattice Layering Stencil, I blended a bit of Stormy Sky Distress Ink just to the top part. I had a previously cut lattice thingy from Tim's new Mixed Media Thinlets - so I cut that down so I had a nice bit of fancyness for the bottom corner.
Next up I stamped the feather using Wendy's Potting Soil and Cornflower Archival Inks, cut it out and edged with Gathered Twigs DI to cover up the cut bits and make it a bit old looking. I then stamped the Bird's Nest using Potting Soil and spent several hours cutting it out, twigs and all! (wish I had used Jet Black as it is a bit pale but believe me, after all that cutting out, it was staying!!!) I used Forest Moss and Gathered Twigs DI's to colour up the next and then stamped the birdy... Jet Black Archival and then coloured with Stormy Sky DI with a smidge of Gathered Twigs around the edges to age him up. The sentiment is actually one of Tim's and I just typed it out on my beloved Underwood, cut out the words and then edged with more Gathered Twigs. And there you have it!
So, what you up to today? A little birdy has told me that a certain AlfieCat has been out with his Daddy and has a pressie for me... as I am scheduling this tonight, Saturday, I can't show you what his pressie is... *I know what it is... oh boy, he has great taste does my little kitty-fella* No doubt I will be sharing on social media so keep your eyes peeled! Whatever you do have planned today, I hope you have a great one! Thanks for looking... TTFN
