Anyone who knows me is aware that I love birds and aqua: pale aqua extending to turquoise. I have quite a collection of chipboard, ribbons and washi tape. I really wanted to use some of stash and thought this would be a great way to utilize it.
I also have a die for cutting birds (Sizzix). This particular die has two birds. I love to cut these birds on double-sided papers, and that way I can choose whether to have them facing each other, or wings to be different, etc.
To start, I painted the large piece of chipboard with a thick acrylic paint ( Dina Wakely). I chose the turquoise for the panel to allow it to be my sentiment background.
Caribbean. I also adorned this butterfly with a rhinestone.
At the bottom of the tag I sewed on a strip of ribbon lace and then a ribbon over the top of the lace. I attached the organza flower to left side of the ribbon. The little bird at the bottom was also part of the decorative paper.
I have always said (to ANYONE who would listen....LOL), "Let your paper do half the work for you". Here is a prime example of how the paper fit into my theme for this tag. Keep your eyes open to all the possibilities! Thanks for dropping by. Happy creating! Sharon aka inkybru
