Mixed Media Tag.

Hello Everyone,
Thought I would join in the challenge at 'That Craft Place' -Tags.
I don't often make Tags, but these little love birds lent themselves to this sort of creation; they are rather cute...I don't often do cute either!

Let us start with the background.
Making the Tag with a SB diecut.

 Painted up with Acrylics.
I stamped the birds in Black Archival Ink , then painted and dry embossed the Bg.
Added some stitching for interest.
Here is a close up view.

adding more texture to the Bg, but did not like it.
Changed it to this.
Now it is finished.

It is wet and cold today in Auckland, thanks for the visit and all the lovely comments you leave me I do appreciate each one.
Have a great week,

Wow, I just love your mixed media tag, Sue - the textures are great, and the golden sunshine glow of the bird panel looks so fabulous against the rich greens of the background. Just fab!

GASP....tag and cute! Surely you must have thought you'd awoke in a alternate dimension while making this....
I think it's marvelous that you put yourself in a zone of somewhat discomfort and came out kicking with this GORGEOUS and fun tag! Since you know I'm nicknamed Bird, I'm partial.
I'm having so much fun catching up on your blog...LOL.
Off I go again,
