Sally CT - A swallow tag

 Hi There! As the theme for this month's challenge over in the Bee Crafty Facebook group is tags, I thought I would make a tag this week. 

I began by cutting the biggest tag from mixed media card using the Bee Crafty Dies. 
 
Next I sprayed it with Dylusions sprays and left it to dry.
Once it was dry I used the dotty dinkable and black soot oxide ink to add some stencilling and also brushed a little ink around the edge of the tag. 

I stamped some of the coffee stain rings and numbers using versafine clair ink over the tag
on a seperate piece of card I stamped the swallow stamp and die cut it
I painted it using distress inks.
I added some white highlights on the tag using a white posca pen and then stamped some of the small words too.

Once it was dry I added the swallow to the tag with 3d glue, along with a little black thread under the swallow and some fibres to the tag top.
Here is the finished tag.

I used:
Versafine clair in Warm breeze and nocturne
Thread

As Jane said in her live last week, tags are a great way of experimenting and just having a go when mojo is lacking. 
Thanks for looking!
