Having just completed the 25 tags for Creative Chemistry 101, I thought maybe I would want to wait a bit before completing Tim’s April tag, introduced today. But when I saw the tag, I was inspired to create something right away.
Every time I see this Bird in a Cage die, I think of Maya Angelou’s autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. So I incorporated the die into a tag with music and spring-y ribbons and trimmings (as opposed to the customary metal embellishments). Distress Inks used: Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Broken China, Iced Spruce, Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy, and Walnut Stain. After inking the cage with Walnut Stain, I embossed it with clear embossing powder. The music stamp is from Hero Arts, stamped with Archival Ink.
I rarely say that I really like something I create. I will say it this time. I do.
Don't you just love the cage and bird die? It's one of my favorites!
I couldn't wait to get started on mine either! ...it usually takes me a few days to figure out just what I want to do on mine, cause I like the inspiration, but don't want to make an exact duplicate of what he does.
I love the use of the cage die and of the yellow ribbon!
Have a great Easter!
This is gorgeous! Love this tag!! The colors are so pretty and springy! :)
I like it too Barbara - a lot. A very pretty tag - love those fabric roses and that you threaded the bottom of the bird cage with ribbon - I will remember to do that myself!!
Love your colors, the music behind the cage, and the wing outside it... you are just on a totally artistic roll, my friend!
Love your tag! I love the finishing touches..the wing outside the cage, the music paper and what a fun sentiment you used.
LOVE this tag! The cage looks great!
And you should like it! How fun to learn new techniques and get to use them...it's amazing how this craft/art has grown. And you are doing a wonderful job contributing to it.
