Bird Tag

Hi I really enjoyed making my altered block (my last posting) Here while I was away with bits and pieces I had taken with me, I am home now and as I was unpacking my limited crafty stash I took
with me I spied some more interesting bits in the bag  and hurried off to my crafty room and created this tag..........everything except the ticket and pearl eye are from the bits bag.....

The tag in the bag is what caught my eye and was already embossed so I lightly dusted this with pan pastels, flower TH tattered flowers the book print petals was only half a flower which I placed at the side of the tag and added a smaller flower cut from purple paper scraps of music paper were inked in Dusty Concorde, netting added and small flower  (from my Alpha dictionary challenge HERE) Bird had been cut in craft card and I also inked with dusty concord (bottom) and vintage photo around edges I also found an embossed wing in brown which really pleased me, ticket was stamped(creative expressions) in dusty concord and inked with vintage photo.  I am really pleased again with the finished project and had great fun, it really didn't take me very long to make................ it just shows you really shouldn't throw anything away..........put it in the bit box lol!!
