Tagtastic!

Hello,
More snow again this morning and another poor photo I'm afraid. Can't seem to get any good ones lately. This week Tuesday Taggers want to see a tag and the theme is Birds, so here is my entry.


I saw a tag card on another blog somewhere (but afraid I can't remember whose) and was inspired to try it out. The base card is Kraft which I inked around the edges with Versafine Sepia. The main image is a bird from an Inkadinkado set, and I stamped this onto white cardstock which I had coloured with Chartreuse and Dark Green dye inks on Cut n Dry foam. I masked the bird and then stamped the branch (from Hero Arts) in opposite corners and also stamped some flowers randomly.(also Inkadinkado) Next I stamped out some more flowers, cut them out and 'decoupaged' them on to the branch and added some green gems to the centres. A final touch was a little bit of stardust stickles on the flowers and a couple of ribbons in the top.

Much of the detail is lost
due to the terrible photo but thanks for looking anyway.

  2. This looks lovely Fiona. The colours are gorgeous and I love that bird stamp as I have the same set.
    Know what you mean about photos as I scan mine when I can for better results but I can't use it if the card is very 3D which is a pain.
    I'm going to enter this too but have to do my PD duties first!

  9. Another beauty Fiona and another gorgeous colour combo! I love the bird stamp, I have that set too and haven't used it for ages....must get it back into action :D. Having the same probs with photo's as you, the light is really difficult at the moment, I've had to re-photo so many cards and still I'm not happy. Chris xx
