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.
