I've always loved the vintage look but always been a little lacking in ideas in how i can make it work for me. Finally today it just happened, all the parts came together and I was left with something I am actually really proud of!
Finally the tag and the bird. the bird i printed and cut then covered in the rock candy crackle paint. the tag is a magnolia die, i have stamped the image from Inkadinkado gem stone birds onto the tag with peeled paint distress ink. I used the walnut stain to go over the edge of the tag and lightly brushed over the top with antique linen distress ink.
The seam binding on the tag was a light pink so i dabbed my peeled paint ink pad onto my acrylic stamp block spritzed on some water and rubbed the binding in it until it was the colour i wanted, then I dried it off fast with my hair dryer before adding it to the card.
