Hmm-bird tag

Oh my has it been two weeks since I've posted?! Time just seems to be crawling by.....Not! (Edit: I have tried for two days to get this post done. sigh)

I have been busy with life and a bit of craftiness. Here's a quick post of a recent tag. Unbeknownst to me, Hels' Sunday Stamper's theme this week is Birds. Have a look at her blog as she does some amazing stuff, Ink on My Fingers. 

So here's my tag - I used one of my 'playing around' tag backgrounds on which I've stamped with white acrylic paint and did the spritz 'n flick. Since my label was going to cover most of the paint stamping I added a bit more in the opposite corners. I'm starting to get the hang of this stamping with paint. I like!

My images on the labels 11 tag are all from SU. I probably should of fussy cut and pop dotted  the Hmmm-bird but this will do. This little tag is spritzed with perfect pearls mists in antique gold and cappuccino. Really like the dots of color and they shimmer in the light.

The seam binding ribbon was colored with distress stains; tea dye and tarnished brass and a bit of water. I looped the bow and tied off before drying with the heat tool, as the metallic stains makes the ribbon a bit stiff. Once dried the bow holds it shape! How cool is that? Added a few pieces of white ball chain and called it done.

Enjoy and Celebrate today!
