Tag Tuesday Challenge #53 - By your own hand

Louise's tag challenge this week is to doodle or write something on your tag.  I had grand visions of doodling, swirling, hand drawing....

Well... it amounted to me using some stickles to create some trails from my butterflies. :) So much for my delusions of grandeur... :)

The tag slides into the pocket. The paper is part of the fantastic Webster's Pages 6 x 6 pack. Loving every sheet of this pack.

The Tag is stamped on Making Memories Paper. The image is from B Line stamped using a brown pigment ink and colored with watercolor pencils.  It is a quote from the Secret Garden and the flowers are part of the stamp.

I stamped it twice and colored the flowers on the second image to cut out and pop dot. I used the remainder of the second stamped image and die cut the butterflies. The edges of the butterflies are sponged with a little orange die ink.

As I said before my doodling is the stickles trail of sparkles on the butterfly.  The dill on the extra piece on the bottom is a new Memory Box stamp.

Here is a nest update. My hubby told me this morning that the eggs had hatched. So we snuck out to take a picture while momma was out gathering some worms.



They look a little hungry but so sweet. Have a beautiful day!

  6. That tag is absolutely fabulous Suzz. I love the papers you have used but the image is stunning. I must look out for that one. Love the butterfly trail too.

    Thanks for sharing the photo of the tiny chicks. They really are sweet and so vulnerable.

    We have mummy and daddy blue tits working like crazy to keep their babies fed in their little house on our garage wall. I have to watch very carefully for the day the chicks leave the nest because there's always one that takes a while to make it out of the garden to the safety of the hawthorn hedge and I have to make sure our Jack Russell, Snoopy doesn't get them.
