I saw the Frilly and Funkie Challenge when it was posted, but I didn't really have winged things or images. Then I got the amazing Cardinal stamp from Emerald Creek and that prompted me to search through my stash. I found these Tim Holtz wings and an idea was born. I then received the #10 tags that I had ordered from the Funkie Junkie Boutique, things started coming together.
As soon as I saw the Cardinal stamp it reminded me of my Mom. She loved cardinals and every year still, I buy a cardinal ornament for my tree in memory of my Mom.
I did a background on one tag in copper and evergreen bough and vintage photo. The top tag i did in Picket Fence and Wendy Vecchi Mica Spray and just a spritz of Dylusions Mica Spray. On the top tag I used my thinlits and cut out the word and the design. Attached my tags together so the bottom tag was visible.
|Beautiful cardinal image from Emerald Creek and watercolored in with Ken Oliver Color Bursts and used Onyx Frost to embossed the feet and around it's beak for a little sparkle.|
|I colored the metal wings with alcohol inks then added some Distress Glitter Dust in Vintage Platinum.|
|I rusted up the forevermore charm after I had stained it with alcohol ink.|
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
