The current challenge over at Dragons Dream Tag It On is to make a tag (using at least one real stamp) that incorporates a bird, a crown, the colour blue and a song.
Initially, I had the song Lavender Blue, Dilly, Dilly … and then the song Blue Moon in my head but as the tag evolved, that changed again.
The owl (isn’t he cute?) was embossed onto my tag using a folder and the cuttlebug. I used Tim Holtz’s trick of cutting a slit in the join of the folder to thread my tag through so I could get the pattern in the right place.
I masked off all but the moon and shaded it in 3 colours of Distress inks. I popped the cut-out back over the top and used 3 of the yellow/orange colours of Distress inks for the main part and the remains of what brown/s were on my blending tool for the owl.
The crown and the stars are stamped with the crown being fussy cut. I popped some washi along the top where there was a nice solid embossed line.
And there you have it.
Cheers, Esther xoxo
