a little bird's tale: Day 3 ~ Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas 2010


Well this is my 'official' 3rd tag of Christmas, although of course it does not follow a Christmas theme ... again.

For my tree I used a Tattered Angels ~ Garden: Blossom Trees stamp. This image has a little bird's nest filled with eggs so I rubbed some Scattered Straw Distress Stickles into the nest and highlighted the eggs with Star Dust Stickles.

For the tag I used Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Pine Needles Distress Ink and Walnut Stain for the edges. The script stamp used was by Paper Artsy. I just love this technique and will use it time and time again ... so thank you Tim.

Here is a close up of the bird cut with the Tim Holtz ~ Caged Bird die.

Unfortunately, I cut off his branch before I decided that I wanted to keep it, so stuck it back on again but forgot to ink the edges. Ho hum. I used Pink Paislee ~ Anthology scraps for the bird which acted as a great resist for the alcohol inks.

The 'a little bird's tale' tag was cut from Heidi Grace papers of the same name and also used thes as my background papers.

The floral ribbon trim is Webster's Pages.

I'm popping this in at the following challenges:
'anything goes': Creative Card Crew 
'use a die cut': Little Red Wagon
'add texture': If the Shoe Fits

Thank you for looking.
