Spring Tag ~ It's Good To Be Back !

Hi everybody! I'm almost ashamed to say that this is my first post of 2019! I've had a little break as real life events have needed my attention. I'm now, very pleased to have a bit more time on my hands! Whilst visiting some of my favourite blogs, I noticed that over at 'A Vintage Journey', they were having their 5th week in the month 'Tag Friday'. I love making tags, so I thought I'd join in.
I started off by creating a textured background, using a wonderful little Dyan Reavely stencil and some modelling paste. The stencil was part of a Ranger freebie given away with with one of the craft magazines. As the stencil was smaller than the tag, I  re-positioned it couple of times allowing the modelling paste to dry each time. I then used my newly acquired Distress Oxide Sprays to colour the surface. It's the first time I've used them and was impressed by how well they covered the textured surface. 
This was how it looked after the first layer of colours. I decided, eventually to use more blue, but was pleased that the amber colour shows through slightly just adding a little glow. I used my favourite bird stamp for the focal image. I hope all the bird watchers out there will allow me a little artistic licence, as I'm pretty sure it's really a Sparrow but has been transformed by the magic of Distress Crayons into a Blue Tit!
The flowers were made using Tim Holtz's Spiral Flowers Thinlits Dies. I love these dies and haven't used them nearly enough! 
The letters that spell the word 'Fly', have been die cut in thin copper sheet using one of Tim's Bigz alphabet dies. I then used a soldering iron and covered the surface of each letter with solder. This is a technique I learnt when I followed the 'Wanderlust' course the other year. It's something I will certainly be doing more of as I love the pewter type finish,
Hope you've enjoyed seeing how my tag came together. I 'm going on holiday for a couple of weeks but will be back with another project soon! x.

  2. Beautiful tag, Toni. I also got that stencil as a freebie in a craft magazine. You've given me inspiration on using it.

  3. They get this fallacious impression due to the fact they're used to the cautiouslyspun language utilized by advertisers to seduce readers and viewers into shopping for products. When describing facial skin smooth girls's mag classified ads or television commercials use phrases like tender easy silky creamy and so on. https://guidemesupplements.com
