I've had alot of fun working on this tag with distressed and inked edges.
I've used newly released Little Friends digital stamp by Elisabeth Bell on a standing tag. I printed the image onto Bazzill Smooth white cardstock then die cut it using a Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Tag and Bookplates Bigz L die. Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image and my attempts at showing the likeness of a gold finch, New Jersey's state bird.
I printed an enlarged version of my colored bird onto regular copy paper and used Ranger's glossy accents to adhere it to a Tim Holtz idea-ology teardrop facet. This sweet embellishment hangs from a jump ring with a Tim Holtz idea-ology Bauble at the loop of a Tim Holtz idea-ology Trinket Pin through a May Arts spring flower printed ribbon tied through my tag's top.
I placed a mask over my colored image then sporadically airbrushed splotches of colors used in my image for a colorful background. When dry, I began to stamp grass, tiny flowers and hearts from a Hero Arts Clear Design: Elephants set around branches from an Inkadinkado Bird Assortment set.
I adhered my tag to another die cut tag to cover the Copic bleed and messy ink. The back of the tag includes a Tim Holtz Alterations Small Easel die cut to allow my tag to stand for display.
