The final tag!!!

Well, at last I have my final tag to share with you (thank goodness I hear you cry LOL!). This one is more or less faithful to Tim's tag idea but with handmade things! I inked the tag with bundled sage and peeled paint distress inks before stamping a script stamp with bundled sage idstress ink too. The edge was inked with walnut stain. I stamped a Stempelglede grunge splatter stamp around the edge with some white emulsion paint as I don't have any acrylics!

I stamped the script stamp onto some red cardstock before cutting out a bird by hand. I also drew the branches with a black marker pen. The nest is some leaf ribbon from my stash.
The text stamp is from Stempelglede, stamped with vintage photo distress ink which I've also used to age the cardstock it is stamped on.

Again I made my own tissue tape by stamping the text stamp onto some masking tape, although I was too impatient and didn't let it dry thoroughly so it is all a bit smudged (aka distressed LOL). The centre is a spacer and a silver brad. I also added some gold tinsel fibres from my stash.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
