Scraps

The top photo is a pile of "scraps" on my table, some abandoned projects, some extra bits of stamped images and die cuts etc, whenever I stamp something I have to stamp it several times in case I mess up with what I'm making and when I'm experimenting with backgrounds ,ink etc also have to do lots,the piles just get bigger so when I decided to make this tag I just picked up pieces from the stack,the only extras I've added are the beads hanging from the cage and the brad at the top, the green layer was already stamped and white embossed so just coloured it with D.Inks wild honey and peeled paint.The bird cage is painted with picket fence crackle and the bird is coloured with vintage photo and then fired brick distress stickles. I'm entering it into a few challenges including Grungy Monday
All Things T!m

Grungy Monday - distress stickles
Simon says stamp and show - show us some bling
