Gonna get this posted, get some laundry folded and grab a cup of hot chocolate!
I created this whimsical tag using the new set by Rupa for Gina K Designs called Home Tweet Home!
I stamped the image twice (so I could cut off a few of the fence posts to make the fence long enough for the tag!) and colored them with Copic markers and cut them out. I assembled them over the tag that I had sponged with caramel and cocoa inks (Stampin' Up!) and stamped Weathered (SU!) background over it with Frayed Burlap distress ink (Ranger).
I painted the Bazzill cardstock key with ivory ink and stamped over it with the weathered bg too. After getting the look I wanted on the tag itself, I added the birdhouse and fence. I added some black crystal stickers under the roof of the birdhouse and a dew drop on the house opening. Finally, I stamped a bird image from the set and colored it pretty brightly and popped it up on a dimensional. (I doubt if there is a bird that actually looks like this--but I just like to create whatever I feel like rather than being factual!) I definitely wanted to get that pop of red in there. After adding the images, the key and the top tag loop, I added a little gingham ribbon to the bird house as a final touch!
When the card was complete, I asked my husband what he thought---he said "Do birds need a key to get into their houses?" DOH!
Hope you are doing well in the hectic-ocity of the season! We are getting ready to travel for the holidays and I am so excited to see all my sisters and my brother (oh, and my parents too *giggle--Hi MOM!)
Have a wonderful day--stay warm!
Thanks for stopping by!
