Regal Air Mail - by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! I'm here again (Sioux) and I've got a tag to share with you all :)

1. Firstly stipple colour the background with Adirondack Latte and Salmon

2. I wanted to use images from the Air Mail Bird Collage Elements Plate so firstly stamped the gorgeous bird head in  Archival Jet Black and masked it.

3. Stamped the T!m distressed wings from the Mini Ornates Plate in Distress Ink Old Paper then masked this.

4. Stamped the franked postage stamp from the Air Mail Bird Collage Elements Plate in Distress Ink Worn Lipstick and masked this.....sorry for all the masking but sometimes you just have to do it! :)

5. Stamped the background using Music # 11 Plate in Distress Ink Pumice Stone

6. Removed all the masks and added the words air mail in Adirondack Pool

7. Thought the gorgeous bird looked so regal that he needed a crown LOL! So used the
T!m crown from the Mini Ornates Plate stamped onto some Ten Seconds Studio Metal (Bronzed God) and attached with silicone.

8. Tattered the edges and added some scratch marks with a pricking tool then inked up with Distress Ink Pumice Stone and Bundled Sage
9. Added a bit of printed twill and an Ideaology Philosophy Tag that had a bit of Adirondack Paint Dabber Espresso swiped over it.....oh! and just had to add a touch of enamel accents in black to the eye of the gorgeous bird....did I mention that he's gorgeous before? LOL!

I enjoyed making that :) See you soon!
