'B' is for Bird Tag

Here is my 'B' is for Birds tag. Just finished for my entry into the UK Stampers Sunday Challenge.

You already guessed the theme from the title so I used a recently bought stamp to make the birds. First I stamped onto a blue background paper with an Illusive Images flourish stamp and Brilliance Pearlescent blue Inkpad to make the background for the bird bodies. The wing background was stamped with Stazon Hydrangea ink and a field of sky stamp from Stamp In The Hand onto another background paper. These backgrounds were then stamped with bird bodies and wings stamps from Build a Bird plate from Stamp Camp in onyx black Versafine Ink. The wings and bodies were trimmed out with scissors ready to be added to the tag.

The tag was cut from plain cardstock and this was coloured with Distress Inks in Faded jeans, Dusty Concorde and Milled Lavender using an applicator tool and cut'n'dry foam. A square background stamp was then spritzed with water and applied onto the tag to wet the ink. This was then dried quickly with a heat gun to set. The letter B was stamped with a foam stamp and the Faded Jeans distress ink as shown.

The birds were assembled and stuck onto the tag as shown and were finished with the eyes and legs in the same onyx black ink using the component stamps. Three squares of the bird body background were punched out and folded in half and applied around the edge of the tag as shown. The letters were cut out from K & Co printed letters and applied as shown. The Fly Away Home was stamped twice in Iris Blue Chalk ink and once at the base with the onyx black Ink. The final flourish was to add an eyelet in cerise and a piece of tied pale blue velvet ribbon through it.

Rather like my bird stamps...........will definately use them again !

Hope you like the tag :-)

  1. Ron - love the bird tag. Gorgeous. Please tell me how you got in touch with stamp camp? I am trying to order some stamps from the web site, but I cannot get a response from anyone by e-mail. I love the build a bird stamp too and would love to order it. There is no phone # for contact. Any help you could give me would be appreciated.

  2. I bought mine when they were at our Happy Stampers Festival here in Port Sunlight. Never dealt with them via the web. Sorry can't be of any more help !
