Welcome if you have come from Beki.
The theme for this month's hop is 'birds'. I always have a soft spot for them. For my project, I wanted to re-create the birds in a different style. I've been seeing a lot of embellishment covered in newsprint, map etc. Hence, I went down that route.
I've been dabbling a lot in digi lately so not surprisingly, I turned to my stash of digi papers to find a suitable paper. Having printed them out, I stamped my bird image on them and cut it out. Here's my finished project:
The tag was decorated with a background stamp from Backgrounds set and the bird was adhered with foam dots.
Whenever I play with my mists on projects, rather than wipe off the excess mist from templates, I tend to stick a tag on top of it to soak up the extra mist. This creates a background image on the tag. The tag is then kept for future use. I just feel it's such a shame to wipe off the extra mist. Here's another misted tag:
The background of the tag was decorated using stamp sets from Totally Tropical & Hiya Chick. Here, I cut off the tail of the bird and re-arranged them on the bird.
The back of the tag can be left blank or simply stamped with background images. I tend to leave blank until I know what I'm using it for... I tend to give them away with birthday cards so usually an inspirational quote will be stamped before sending it off!
