Hi everyone - well the weather has been terrible here ... rain ... rain ... rain ... and more rain!
Here's a tag I made for the One Word Wonder challenge over on Facebook. The word today is winged.
I love making these tags - not too big, not too small.
I started by covering the tag with frayed burlap distress ink. Went around the edges with pink Inka Gold, gold leaf Rub'n'Buff then some black Archival ink.
Found a small branch stamp on a Clear Impressions freebie stamp collection - rose garden, these came free with Creative Stamping magazine. Stamped the image around the stamp using frayed burlap DI.
Stamped the winged heart, from the Chocolate Baroque Punky Romance stamp collection, onto some card using barn door DI. Cut out & edged with the black archival ink. Stamped again, this time just trying to stamp the wings, using gold ink then heat embossed using clear embossing powder. Cut out the wings.
Went around the wings with the pink Inka Gold, then edged with black archival ink.
Coloured the cogs on the heart using Cosmic Shimmer watercolour, to give them a bit of shine.
Stamped the sentiment from Creative Expressions Bird stamp collection, designed by Sam Poole, onto white card using black archival.  Ripped carefully around the sentiment, than inked using frayed burlap DI, pink Inka Gold & the gold leaf Rub'n'Buff.
Decided where I was placing the sentiment then stamped the small bird images, from the freebie Clear Impressions stamp collection, using espresso Adirondack ink.
Stuck the heart to the tag, adhered the wings with foam pads. Adhered the sentiment with foam pads.
That's about it! Got to get ready for an overnight visitor of the four-legged variety tonight - James's dog Poppy is staying over. Wonder who will take up most of the bed??

Good job she's cute and only small! Still takes up a lot of bed though!
Hope you didn't get too wet today, thanks for stopping by.
