My mini Tag

Greetings Everyone.
Tag Tuesday has come around again, and this week Louise
(Kard Krazy) has challenged us to do a tag with another tag on top! 
There are some very talented tag makers out there and it is worth taking a browse through what has already been posted.
Inspiration is a wonderful thing, and when I see something on a card/tag that I think is amazing it just motivates me to push myself a little more to try and do something just as amazing.
Sometimes it all comes together (not often) and sometimes I have complete disasters.

 I interpret ideas into my cards that I think will work, I do not seem to have one particular Genre, which comes as a bit of a surprise to me.
When I was patch-working quilts, I always stayed Traditional and stuck to the earthy colours.
This does not seem to be the case with my cards!

                                                   This is my TAG:

                    I am Wishing that it is going to come together.
                                                       And it did!!!!!


                          It is not a big one as you can see just 3ins x 2ins.

 How it was put together:
 I coloured the background and stamped a flourish in distress inks
(weathered wood, pumice stone, peeled paint lightly) and Aged mahogany).
The background behind birdcage is my own made paper.
Cricut birdcage, bird and flowers out of my paper,
Glossy accents on all the petals, and diamond dust on bird wing.

I am still in a shabby chic mode at the moment, lets see how long it lasts!!!!
