Hello again Peeps
I very nearly forgot to do something today!!
A few weeks ago the lovely Frankie organised a Birdcage Swap (is it Birdcage or Bird Cage?)! We were all given a few weeks to complete a birdcage tag and then Frankie e-mailed us with our recipient to whom we were to send our completed tag.
Here is mine.....
I made a tag using the TH Tag Die, inked it with DIs and splashed it with water. I then inked my lovely new Bird Cage stamps which my friend had very kindly brought back from Denver with DI and then powdered with Perfect Pearls in Gold and Bronze. I inked the lickle birdies with TH Archival ink. Distressed the edges and inked with Walnut Stain DI. I also stamped around the edges with a Penny Black (Christmas shhhh!) stamp.
I then set about cutting a Bird Cage with my TH die using shrink plastic, which I then heated and shrunk down, and inked with Gold Alcohol Inks. A little ribbon, TH embellie with E, a little spray with Perfect Pearls spray and hey presto one tag.
I was so glad when Elizabeth e-mailed me to tell me it had arrived and she liked it. Phew!!
And here is the one I received from Helen.
It is so lovely and colourful and I believe coloured with Distress Stains. Now I KNOW I NEEEED some more colours if they make your work bright and colourful like this. Thanks Helen!! You have made me spend more money now!!
I must also say a huge Thanks to Frankie for organising this and can you remember me when you do another swap please?
Right! Off to put the chickens to bed and whizz down to my dance class. See you all later.
