Tag number 3

Well I did at least have the bird die for this one so that was a good start. Didn't have a tree or branch stamp except this rather feeble one which is almost covered up anyhow, coloured the bird with fired brick DI and then stamped the music over it. I don't have the paint dabbers so just stamped with white acrylic paint and I do like the snowy effect, will be doing that again!  The nest bit is some eyelash wool and it really did not want to stick on there so I ended up pushing a brad through it, hoped it wouldn't show but it does. made the flower from some old book pages and fastened the tag on with a large pearl pin. I did have some of the elasticy trim, it came from a local haberdashery shop and I knew it would come in useful someday, the tinsel is a pipe cleaner from my box of Christmas ribbons etc ,some sari ribbons on the top. I think this is my favourite one to date, probably because I love the bird. Also posted this on The Artistic Stamper Christmas challenge

  3. Its terrific Joan........lol at least we both had the bird die...yipee. Great flower and ribbon, have never heard of eyelash wool, but I can tell you that Anitas 3d gloss will stick it, a cheaper version of Rangers but for gluing is very effective. Annette x
