Tag #2

This next tag is very similar to the first tag I shared on my previous post, in the fact that it has a bow on top, and the center of attention is in the center of the tag as well.
As you can see, I used on this tag the piece from the inside of the frame I used on the previous tag I shared. I really don't like to waste, plus I love the shimmer it showed. I just had to use it right away.
The background of the tag is designer paper from the K&Co. Watercolor Bouquet Collection, and I sprayed it using Blazing Sun Glitz Spritz.
The bird cage and bird are both from the Mover's and Shaper's line of Tim Holtz's Alterations. I cut them out of light weight chipboard, and embossed them using Lindy Stamp Gang Embossing Powders. On the bird cage I did regular embossing using Spring Leaf Chartreuse Embossing Powder, after spraying some parts with My Mojito Green Starburst Spray. On the bird, I did the Intaglio Technique (you can watch a tutorial on how it is done HERE), using Kaiser Rudolph Russet Embossing Powder.
I used one of my Stamping up punches, and punched out the label where I stamped the word Paris. This stamp is also from the same TJ Designs Rubber Stamp Set I used on Tag #1, which I shared on my previous post.
I sprayed that label with my Glory of the Seas Gold Starburst Stain. I added some punch out leaves I punched with one of my Martha Stewart punches, pearls, and some pompom trim on both the bottom of the tag, and the mat underneath the birdcage. I used some ivory organza ribbon, as well as some pink seam binding to add a bow to the top of the tag, which I finished, by adding a small flower applique I found in my stash.
When I think of springtime, I think of bright colors, birds and butterflies. This tag to me screams springtime. More to come  =D

  4. Great idea to use the inner from the last tag, it's a lovely colour and the shimmer on it is fab! It's a perfect match for the colours in the backing paper which is also lovely. xx

  16. Gorgeous tag! That intaglio technique on the bird looks so cool and I love that you made such good use of your 'bonus' pieces from Tag 1! Sounds better than scraps, huh? I don't like to throw anything out either. Love the pom-pom trim. It reminds me of poodles which in turn remind me of Paris, lol!

  17. Beautiful tag Sharon. Your work is always amazing. How do you do it with a baby and a home to give attention to. Oh and the dog and your husband. I am sure you are a multi-tasker. LOL.
    Can't wait to see the other tags.
    TFS.
    But the way when are we going to all get together at the niche on a friday night crop or during the day?
