Well hello from the wild and windy North! My name is Jennie and I am absolutely thrilled to be here this month as Guest Designer alongside such an amazing Design Team. Thank you so much Vicki for inviting me.
Today I am sharing an oriental tag showcasing these two wonderful birds from the graphic45 Bird Song Collection.
I inked up a Size 10 tag with Ranger Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick. I made a mask from Post It Notes for the sun and used a Crafters Workshop Leaf Mask in the lower part of the tag. I then stamped some Chinese Text (a Craft Stamper Freebie many moons ago!) in Fired Brick.
I fussy cut the birds from one of the labels on the sheet and used foam pads to give a little definition. Then it was all about decorating around the birds. All these pieces came from the graphic45 Tranquility sheet which is full of labels, stamps and borders. It really is a quite beautiful sheet to use.
I made a little fan from some Chinese paper in my stash and added the srim and blossoms. Again just some old tiny white flowers I found in my stash which benefited from the addition of some stamens.
I had a lot of fun making the tag as “oriental” is not something I normally do, but graphic45 papers are always wonderful to work with.
Thanks for looking and I look forward to seeing you later in the month with another project.
