Monochromatic tag

 Good Morning friends.........as promised yesterday here am with another tag. This one is almost entirely done in blue. 
Let me briefly take you through the steps -
  • To begin I used TCW - birds of a feather stencil with texture paste (homemade)
    to create the base layer, let it dry & then colored over with salty ocean distress paint. 
  • Then stamped the script (stampaddicts - pot pourii) in archival black.  Added some crackle paint (rock candy) to the branches. A dash of brown & green highlights the branches.
  • Next to tone down the color I added a layer of watery gesso.............

Look at the awesome texture! Added a bit of shimmer to all the birds with my favorite Wink of Stella glitter brush pen. 

The little black butterfly is from shrink plastic! 

And the bird charm compliments the theme of the tag, don't you agree? 

The cages were highlighted using vintage photo DI.

The maroon bird escaping from the cage is a rub on & I think is perfect to break the monotony of blue in the tag. 
Next I splattered run down gesso randomly over the tag.

Thank you so much for visiting & taking the time to comment on my blog. I love to hear from you & truly appreciate your feedback. Have a crafty day!!
