The Sky is the Limit

Hello (again) and welcome, dear friends, readers and followers!

A few days ago I received the wonderful bird stamps from Redlead I had ordered and had to use them for a tag immediately. :)

This is what I came up with:

I just LOVE those bird and nest stamps and the saying too! I stamped all images with archival jet black ink and coloured them afterwards using a thin brush and Distress stains, which I applied to my craft sheet. I added some small images of the "Birds of a Feather" stamp set from TJ Designs for more depth and a lace border at the bottom.

Then I glued a birds nest from strings I had pulled from a piece of rough burlap and
put in three of the lovely eggs Ana K. had sent me along with her awesome tag and book. Done.

Distress stains used for colouring: "brushed corduroy", "stormy skies", "pine needles" and "crushed olive".

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty sunday!
