Bird Man


Another wet day here in the UK, so what better thing to do than get inky in the craft room.
The background and metal embellishment  for this tag were made following the instructions found in Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 - page 58,  Faux Patina . It is part of the challenge rules that I cannot explain how I made it.
The main colouring are Wild Plum and Stream, alcohol inks with Antique linen distress ink on the image.
The stamps used  are from a Paper Artsy plate.

Challenges.
Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 2

Make My Monday- week 36 Birds or Animals, maybe  I am a bit outside the box with this tag, but he does have a bird's body.

Thank you for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
