Bird Tag by Sioux Jenneys

I'm here again to share a tag today :)

1. I made the background using Distress Inks faded jeans, Victorian velvet, and crushed olive swooshing them around on a non stick sheet drying and swooshing some more!! ;)

2. I stamped the bird from airmail bird collage in Archival black and then masked it...followed by stamping the music back ground in Distress Ink Victorian velvet.

3. The little combo at the top was the stamp image (aged mahogany), ticket (vintage photo) and "perfectly fitted" (Archival coffee) from Ephemera 1.

4. "Free as a bird" and "Hold fast" quote stamped in Archival black.

5. The mini lattice wire was stamped round the edges in vintage photo, then the edges tattered and more vintage photo and aged mahogany used to age the edges.

6. For no other reason than I have a lot of spare cava tops
(I am the cava queen after all!!! LOL)
I added this in the corner with "dream" from mini journaling words...finished off with some bakers twine and a crown on the bird using a little bit of German scrap form my stash :)

I'll be back ;)
xoxo Sioux

I love that bird stamp and I love this tag - but can't get my head around the combination of colours used for the base - who'd a thunk there was faded jeans in there? lol...
