Now here is my tag. I was cruising along following his tag and his inspiration and then I started to do my own thing. (A problem of mine...)
I didn't want to use the tissue flower on my card but definitely going to try it on another project in the future.
The background is a combinations of Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss. I stamped the script from the Stampers Anonymous set in the background in Vintage Photo and Shabby Shutters. The bird is from the Sizzix Die by Tim Holtz. The tissue tape is from Ranger. The ink on there is actually Versafine Crimson Red. I tried the dye inks but they weren't giving enough color so I put the Versafine ink on and clear embossed it. I then added the Stickles Rock Candy but it didn't give enough texture so I added some crystal fine glitter and a pearl for an eye.
The other stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms, Impression Obsession and Penny Black. Loved the idea of using the splatter stamp with the Adirondack Paint Dauber. Fantastic effect.
The birds nest... Hmm.. I didn't have the moss and my birds around here are known for picking up junk from my dryer vent and using it in their nests. So I made a nest from the scraps on my desktop from cutting my trim on the bottom and the top. :) A little messy and not as fun as the moss.
Onto my second card for today.
