Tuesday Taggers ~ Tag along with our Feathered Friends

It's Tuesday, it's 9 o'clock ish and it's ......... now if you finish off with Crackerjack you've spent too many hours as a child in front of the TV. If you've no idea what I'm on about then you're far too young to understand!! lol

However it is Tuesday and it is Taggers Day!!!

The challenge for this week is to create something which has a tag on it or is a tag and has a bird or birds on it. Other than that the sky's the limit and you can whatever takes your fancy.

It's been a while since I did a tag for TT and I do love Tagging, I keep them all displayed in my craftroom till I need a tag for a present then I pick one, make a card and wrapping paper or decoration to match it, and use it to wrap up my pressies.

They make simple gifts something special to recieve. I've even started making the card and paper at the same time and keep them together as sets in cellophane bags

Geeky or What!

Anyway I did make a tag for this weeks challenge and here it is

Do you recognise the shape? ~ it's one of the packing cards off ............ It's something very close to your heart I'm sure!  tell me what it's off and I'll send you the tag!

The background was coloured with Adirondak inks willow, aqua, pool and lettuce. The trees were stamped with the crafty individuals birds stamps with lettuce adirondak and the Kingfisher is a Dimension Fourth Stamp, coloured with illuminarte mica pigments.

The little orchid is a flower I designed myself on the Robot Crop. I've developed a number of dimentional flowers which I am going to list for sale as a colour yourself range in my etsy shop when I launch it later in the week

Here's a close up

We've got two Guest Designers this week as well as inspiration from the DT so pop over and have a look, we'll look forward to hopping over to see you.

Happy Blogging
x Michelle

What a puzzle Michelle. I've stared at this gorgeous tag for ages but have no idea what it's come from, you are a tease.
It's a beautiful tag though. I love tags too. I shall try really hard to get this weeks challenge done, I desperately need to get back into doing them.
Your flowers are lovely too. Clever you, I'm sure they'll be a real winner.
If you come over with your camera, let me know, we only live 2 minutes from the river and you're very welcome to call in for a cuppa!!

Beautiful work Michelle, but no idea where the tag came from. Yes, unfortunately I am old enough to remember Crackerjack and funnily enough saw Peter Glaze in an old episode of The Sweeney this week.
