And as I mentioned in my previous tag post, this is the 2nd tag I made today.

I'm using one of the French sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design

Stamp the Reflections (Tim's stamp) script stamp from the set with Versafine Black Onyx and stamp onto the embossing folder (Craft Concepts "Leafy Flourish") then run tag through embossing machine. Sponge Distress Crushed Olive, Scattered Straw and a touch of Wild Honey and Gathered Twigs around edges.

Die cut branches (Tim's "Branched Tree") and bird (Marianne's "LR0138") both from Grungepaper. Sponge branches with Gathered Twigs and embossed with Distress "Vintage Photo", then rub off for texture. Sponge blues on bird, then White Picket Fence Stain and more blues.

Apply stains to a scrap piece of cardstock (Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, mist and dry. Sponge Crushed Olive all over, then die cut several branches using the above bird die. adhere all the tree and bird elements.

Die cut the tag (Tim's Movers & Shapers "Mini Tickets set" from manila cardstock. Punched slits for my ribbon. Apply some pigment ink and emboss with Peridot, then reheat and apply silver, while still hot, stamp the word into the hot embossing first inking stamp with Versafine Black Onyx. When cooled, embossed with the Flourished Leaf folder and a rubber mallet.

Thread the ribbon through slots and attach to tag with adhesive and then with the Tiny Attacher. Attach ribbon at top of tag with the attacher.
