A Bird Sings Because It Has A Song

Please note my BLOG CANDY post is HERE.

Time for my weekly post for 100 Proof Press and this week I am showcasing the  BIRD PARTY image.
I enjoyed decorating a tag this week, painting the background with a stencil using Fresco Finish Paints.
Once I had added the stencilled background I then coloured over the top with broken china ink, distressing the edges and colouring with walnut stain Distress Ink. I love this sentiment and thought it was perfect for the bird images I have used.
I added the BIRD PARTY birds along the bottom of my tag, colouring with the Fresco Finish Paints adding white highlights to some of the areas. I also stamped the BINGO CARD onto white card using Archival Ink adding a heart on the top for added dimension and a bird cage charm for further interest.
This picture highlights the dimension on my BINGO CARD.
To add a little more interest to my background I have stamped the HONEYCOMB TEXTURE with Fresco Finish Paint and added circles cut from a second stamped BINGO CARD.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
