Feathers and wings

I made these  pieces  just before we left Derbyshire for home , I had read that over at
  Moo Mania and More that the current theme  was Feathers. 

The site we were staying with the caravan was in the old walled garden on the Chatsworth Estate, with  families of ducks, wandering about seeking bread from folk who would feed them. Feathers could be found quite easily on the ground, but as we had so much rain, most you couldn't use.
The layers are stamped with Stampers Anonymous images and the bird stencil is a Dina Wakley one. 

 This past  weeks theme at Tag Along was  Wings, I am to late to join in but I enjoyed making this tag.

I used scraps that I keep in a small  portable box for this tag and a little distress ink for shading.

Thank you for stopping by, the comments you leave me are always appreciated.


  1. These are gorgeous - I love that colourful little bird, and the layers of stamping are fabulous. Lovely vintage images on the tag too...
