Tweet Chirp

Happy weekend! Hope you are doing fun stuff, especially crafting!
I played in my craft room this afternoon with one of my new stamps-
Scribbly Birds by Dina Wakely for Ranger. You have probably been seeing a lot of these birds on blogland. I just love them, so of course I had to have them, too!




I chose to make a tag. And it has lots of textures! I started first with clear embossing paste and stencils. Then I added color with watercolors and Distress inks. It even has glitter! Did I go a little crazy or what??? But I love it! Hope you do, too!

 I hope this qualifies for the current 


I used summery colors and colored my bird like a yellow finch.
We have had lots of these little finches at our feeders this summer!


Thanks for stopping by!
