On the third day of.........

I really enjoyed making this tag. After I located a birdstamp I was off to the races. I had no tissue tape so I decopaged some sheet music onto my grungeboard, then stamped the bird with staz-on and cut him out. I used cranberry, red pepper and raisin alcohol inks to color the bird. My branch is a Stampscapes stamp. I created my own little collage with some very old stickers. My tissue tape flower is really masking tape that I stamped script on with stazon and then made the flower just like Tim showed us. The birds nest is some olive colored fluffy fiber hot glued on and the background script and snow are both done with Club Scrap stamps--the script is Earth and Herbs and the snow is both Winter Wonderland and Friendship stamps. Looking forward to day 4 tomorrow.


  1. Rachel, glad you didn't bother with the tape. Your tag turned out absolutely fabulous and your tape flower is perfect.

  2. Wow never thought about masking tape, what a fab idea and it looks great. I love everything about your tag Rachelle especially that brilliant bird and the clever idea of the bird seed. Fab. Annette x

  3. Oooooooooooooo love did awesome with that bird and all you did

  4. Wonderful tag. I love your embellishments and stamping. You certainly had more success with the flower than me. See you tomorrow.

  5. Your tag is amazing! Love the clever use of masking tape to make a totally fabulous flower!
