12 Tags of Christmas. Woo hoo! I have had a great time creating these tags - I can't thank Tim enough for sharing all of his wonderful techniques and inspiration with us all.
Tag Tuesday theme was Silver or Gold, I decided that I would use the bird and cage and try a little experiment. My friend, Candice, had taught a project at our local stamp club using this die (I don't own it...yet) and had given me a couple extra birds. I traced one onto Grunge paper and finished it as Tim shows (except I didn't use enough Rock Candy crackle paint!). The cage was also from Candice and had been cut from cardstock.
just like my frames - and then wiped it off. The resulting finish looks just like tarnished silver. Oooooohhh...I love it! I had been on the fence about getting the bird and cage die, now I am definitely convinced that I NEED it! How awesome would this be as an ornament?
If anyone is interested in a tutorial - let me know! I just need to get that die or have someone cut me a few birds + cages.
