Tim's Twelve Days of Tags

Tim is having his 12 days of tags.  I am going to play along each day if I can. This tag is inspired by his tag and is for the Stamp and Show challenge and The Artistic Stamper challenge.  Here is his first wonderful tag.  I was inspired to go a little different direction.


I used my little birdcage and bird along with some snowy branches in the background. The background is a combination of stamping, embossing, white crayon and sponging different colors.

The images are all from various Stampers Anonymous stamps School Desk CMS 057, Letter to Santa CMS 053, Artful Flight CMS069, Spring Sprung CMS084, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Be Merry.

Inks: Ranger Distress Inks Vintage Photo, Stormy Weather, Chipped Sapphire, Aged Mahogany, Versamark and Pine Needles.

Thanks for stopping by.
