Tag Number 2!

Well, I'm on a roll! Got my 2nd Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas done! So here's how this one went, as I do not have anything he calls for! I started with plain kraft paper, stamped the music score with black stazon, stamped the words Joy, and embossed with clear. I painted my tag with watered down white acrylic paint. I stamped a Scrolls Works stamp with Evergreen Bough and Gathered Twigs DI, and added some berries with my fantastix and Festive berries DI. So far so good! My Spellbinders bird was cut out with chipboard, and white sticky back canvas that I colored with Antique Linen DI. Attached some twine around it's neck, a bead, and a chenille stem for the wreath. Not bad. The border at the bottom was punched out of kraft paper, and distressed with Gathered Twigs DI. My brads were distressed with a mini ball pien hammer. Colored my ribbon with Vintage Photo Distress Stain, and tied on green burlap. I am pleased with my interpretation of Tim's tag! Hope you are all having a good time with yours!!
