- I created my own tissue tape (not worth the hassle! buy it!) by first stamping white tissue paper with a music stamp and then running it thru my Xyron. Then, cut into strips and apply randomly.
- I didn't have Rock Candy Stickles, so I made my own icy glitter using Glossy Accents and some craft store chunky clear glitter.
- My bottom ruffle was created using crepe paper streamers that are gathered and stitched to the tag.
- The 'button' on my flower was made by inking an upholstery tack with Versamark and then embossing with silver ep. While it was hot, I dipped it into some of Martha's silver glitter. Love this!
Speaking of my flower - I absolutely love Tim's tissue tape flower, but I couldn't resist trying out the Acetate Flowers technique from the latest issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. It's very cool! The flowers were all cut using Tim's Tattered Florals die. All the stamps I used (except for the music) are from I Brake for Stamps.
Ooops! I just realized I forgot the bird's wing! It is a flightless bird...
