12 tags of 2012 - april

Here is my tag for the April tag over on Tims Blog:

I actually made it a couple of weeks ago but wasnt keen on the colour scheme and was going to redo it using reds as it would go more with my British theme but the tag has grown on me since then and I don't want all red tags so I have kept it as is.

Stash used was Wild Honey, Crushed Olive, Brushed Corduroy, Broken China, Tea Dye distress inks. Tea Dye embossing powder.  Pinecone leaves from Sizzix die (have since bought the bird on a branch die for the crop but its still unused in the box!), bird and wing are the from Birdcage die.  For the background I used Couture Creations World Map embossing folder with the Numbers reflections stamp inked with Jet Black Archival Ink.  To keep with my British theme I used the Inkylicious Union Jack 2 part – Keep Calm and Carry On stamp and the Artemio - London Landscape stamp.  Metal crown is from one of T!ms metal sets.  To finish the tag I used a piece of muslin died with Broken China and Wild Honey distress stains, a vintage lace diecut inked with Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo and then the lovely little soldier you see standing in the bottom right hand corner is cut out from a ribbon.

Thanks for looking :)  Off to Tennis from Solihull

Such a great tag. All the details had me looking around. I love that sentiment, have it on a teapot and a stamp at home. Great way you put part of it on his wing...Fun.
