Tag with swinging bird

This tag was made for another name-day, my friend's name-day. She saw one of my previous tags with the same bird on a swing and asked me to make her the same but only with neutral colours: beige, grey and brown.

So I made this:

And here is the tutorial.

I cut out a tag with Tag&Bookplates Bigz die from 300gsm watercolour paper. I painted grey with Hickory Smoke. When it was dry I stamped the rose pattern on the surface with Ground Espresso Archival ink.

Then I muted the original colours with white paint. I applied layer after layer until I was satisfied with the result.

I inked the edges with Ground Espresso Archival ink, then stamped the text with embossing ink. I heat embossed the text using black embossing powder. In the end I splattered the tag with white paint.

The base of the bird was painted with brown paint. Then the second layer was a sheet music patterned paper.

With a piece of twig and jute twine I created a swing and then I glued to the tag with hot glue.

The ribbon was coloured with brown Distress inks.
