I started simply by pulling out all my bird items I wanted to use. I put them on the tag in the pattern I thought would work.
Once that was done I cut some thin chipboard to back them up. At this point I realized the number 8 tag was not going to work. I ended up using a number 10 tag.
You can see my trinkets don't really coordinate. There are a lot of brass tones in there, so I went with yellows for my background. I used Antique Linen, Pumice Stone, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, and Wild Honey Distress Ink for the background.
I used the new Wildflower paper to cover my chipboard. Once covered I distressed the edges and tinted with Vintage Photo Ink.
Now I needed to make the bits a pieces work together. I colored the resin bird using Distress Markers. The chipboard bird, wing, frame, and bird stickers were all colored using Alcohol Inks.
Are you ready to see the finished tag?
I topped it off with crinkle ribbon colored with Scattered Straw, Gathered Twigs, and Peacock Feathers. I gave it a spray of Walnut Ink too.
Here's the little birdy colored with the markers.
Here are the other elements colored with alcohol inks.
This tag makes me happy :)
