Sunday Stampers Challenge week 4

The theme for this weeks challenge was birds, so we had to use inky techniques and it had to have a bird on it somewhere- I decided to make a tag.
On the front of the tag I used an Adirondack ink pad (wild flower) and a brayer to make the background and then I spritzed it with a little water. I used 3 Cats Life Press stamps and stamped 2 of them directly onto the tag using jet black stazon and the third one, the bird I stamped onto some DCWV paper in black stazon.
For the back of the tag, again I used the wild flower ink pad and the brayer - the colours were alot darker this time as I didn't add water to it. Again I used a Cats Life Press stamp and stamped in jet black stazon onto a piece of DCWV paper. I then used a large tree stamp and a small owl stamp (both Anna Griffin) and stamped them in versamark ink and put gold embossing powder over them. To finish off the tag, I outlined it with gold krylon pen and added some fibres.
