Tags and more Tags

All week the Stampendous Design Team and the Clearsnap team are hopping and sharing inspiration. Today is the grand finale on the hop.  I have been busy making tags and ended up with another tag to share for today's hop.


I received a beautiful ink pad from Clearsnap - 5 Color Ink Pad with several colors of ink on the inkpad.  I used it to create the stripes on the background. 

I then stamped the Stampendous Cling Winter Birds using the brown ink onto the tag and white cardstock.  I heat embossed them with brown embossing powder.  I colored the birds using the STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and a waterbrush.  I cut the birds out and pop dotted them onto the branches on the tag. 

I stamped the background with the Chox brown ink and the Stampendous background stamp.

For all the fabulous inspiration hop along:


Thanks for stopping by!
