Bird and Bees Tag ATC







This atc i am entering into 2 Challenges and i owe both challenge blogs a big thank you as i had an atc block and combining the 2 challenges has got me over my atc block.
First challenge is Creative Inspirations which is tags this week, i have made the atc into a nest pocket for the bird tag.
Second challenge is Tuesday Taggers which this week is a theme of birds and bees, i did a bee background on the atc and a patchwork style bird on the tag.
Background on atc is stamped with saddle brown stazon and stamps are from the Whimsical Garden See Ds Morsels set. Coloured in the bees and added a strip of basket weave paper to form a "nest" to hold the bird tag.
The bird template i got from a past crafts beautiful mag luckily for me as my printer is poorly it was just the right size i needed. I took a bit of inky card (i always use scaps of card and paper to mop up the excess ink after projects and keep these in a box for other projects.
I used the same swirl stamp as i did in background and stamped on the card with pearlescent brilliance ink.
I made 4 of these atcs but this is my fav and the one i'm entering in the challenges will put the other 3 in a seperate post.
