A Little Birdie - A Colourful Tag

Hi everyone,

It's Donna here today creating a colourful tag for you...I must be wishing for Spring already I think!

I used a size 8 manila tag and swooshed it through some Distress Oxides that I had already diluted on my craft mat with a spritz of water. I stuck to the pink, green and orange palette for this to create a muted background.

I then used a feather stamp from the Textured Feathers set, stamping with a blue Distress Oxide as I just wanted some subtle stamping in the background. I then added further stamping in black with a mixture of stamps from Weed Love and A Little Birdie .

I then used a sheet of Strathmore Mixed Media paper to stamp some more images from A Little Birdie and some flowers from the Textured Flowers set. I coloured these in with my Zig Clean Colour pens, then fussy cut them out to adhere to the tag.

I then added the sentiment from A Little Birdie as a fishing touch.

I hope you like my tag which I think may just well bring Spring that little bit closer.....hopefully!

Donna xx

Supplies Used:

  1. It's a beautiful tag that certainly gives me a swarm, spring feeling! Love the vibrant colours, and I have to say that I'm impressed by how you combined stamps from different sets, such as the Textured Flowers popping up out of the Weed Love background, and the bird sitting on the branch from Mama Owl. Clever! (I need to work more on combining). Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous tag, Donna! ♥ ♥ ♥
