Crafty Individuals......

Wow another sunny morning and I managed to get some of my jobs done yesterday so I also had a play....well I am on holiday and I've still got a couple of days off as well, I've never managed to do a posting a day for a long time but I certainly got nice and messy with todays card. It started life out as an experiment usig the crackle glaze with the new Fresco paints from Paperartsy but mine didn't crackle that much, so rather than ditch it I used it as the background of this tag which then evolved into my entry for this months challenge at Crafty Individuals.....if you're like me and you adore their stamps you just need to click here and enter, this months theme is called Free as a Bird. I have used lots of layers and techniques on this one and used papers from Springtime and the Tree paper books, the die cut bird was painted with fresco paints and I added gold dabber around the edges, the music stamp is from CI as are all the other stamps on this tag, I used the swirls stamp, again stamped with gold for the background and parts of the bird plate for the verse and small images of the birds which I stamped using Plum Versamark. There is also lots of spraying with mists on this .....I used three colours of glimmer mist for the ribbon and sprayed the background with Heirloom gold from ranger....you could say I kinda went overboard ....lol, the gold utee was stamped with a flower stamp using versamark which I then dust with Perfect Pearls and then put the heat gun on it again for the colours to merge.....have to be careful as you can loose the design if it melts too much.
