A Generic Bird

Signing in with a quick post this evening showcasing the fabulous Generic Bird Diagram once again from 100 Proof Press.
I created a HUGE tag (I am loving this size of tag at the moment, available from Linda at The Funkie Junkie in her new Zibbet store), so much space to get creative.
I coloured my tag with Distress Stains, applying them to my non stick craft sheet and then swiping my tag through the ink, drying and then repeating the process. Once dry I then spritzed with water to give a mottled effect.  I then stamped the Generic Bird Diagram onto the card with Distress Ink and then a second and third time so that I could add dimension to my bird and wing. I coloured my bird with Distress Inks and added a crown, cut from card using the mini crown and fleur set which I cut down slightly to fit. I also added the fabulous sentiment from Artistic Outpost which I thought fitted the Generic Bird perfectly.
I had some vintage lace trim left from a previous project cut using the vintage lace die which I coloured with a spritz of reinker and Perfect Pearls mix, I love the shimmer this adds to a project but very difficult to capture on a photograph.
For added interest and dimension I cut a heart from card using the mini heart die coloured with broken china and vintage photo Distress Inks, adding SOAR to the top, cut from the Artistic Outpost sentiment.  I added a little bird charm from Tim's Idea-ology, adding twine and a jump ring to fasten.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you all enjoy your weekend. I have a busy weekend ahead with many creative deadlines to meet, which should be a challenge in itself as I am out tomorrow and Sunday for Father's Day.  Could be a few late nights on the cards lol!!
