I did give a little groan when I saw the challenge topic this week at Louise's Tag Challenge! Even though I live in a snowy ski town, I just couldn't bear to do anything with snowmen, snowflakes etc. I have put all my Christmas stuff away, and was not going to go down in the garage to dig some of it out. So I decided to create something with birds and evergreens, a bit cheerier for me and hopeful. Here it is:
I stamped an evergreen stamp by Delta in 2 different color greens on the tag. I took a small piece of small bubble wrap, dipped it in gesso, whipped it off, and stamped it on to look like snow. I stamped the bird from Invoke on blue scrapbook paper, cut out, colored in, added gold and bronze paint and glued on. Cut out a bird from an Oxford Impressions sheet and glued it on. I stamped the music stanza in sepia. It is from the same Invoke set with birds. Brushed sepia ink on the edges and more gesso. Stuck 3 feathers through the hole and taped in back. Winter in Park City!
