Live the Life


The tag is grungeboard cut with Tim's tag die and then embossed with Woodgrain texture fade.  The tag started longer and I had put a border along the bottom but decided I really didn't like what I was doing and cut that part off... but not wanting to waste an otherwise nice beginning to a tag I chose to make a short tag. The coloring on the base tag is Tim's technique Weathered Wood with white and yellow paint dabber and a few colors of Distress Inks.  The bird and cage are cut form grunge.  The cage is embossed with the dot matrix texture fade, painted with silver paint dabber and then some black ink over that to tone it down.  The bird is colored with Distress Inks and stamped.  The bells were silver and colored with black alcohol ink.  The black dots around the edge and for the bird's eye were done with black Enamel Accents.

I love how you run the birdcage through the cuttle bug to emboss it. The texture using this technique adds a lot to the birdcage. Beautiful tag. TFS
