LOVE TAGplorations – Day 1 – February 8, Wednesday

Here’s my tagged card.

I started by stamping the bird from STAMPlorations Trendy Birds 2, carefully inking up the stamp with a variety of colors, onto some white cardstock.

I masked off the bird and branch with some removable sticky label. Next, I sponged yellow and light green ink through the ARTplorations stencil Leaf Prints.

Then, I used the another ARTplorations stencil and added some tinted embossing paste with Retro Circles.

I made a tag using the CUTplorations Luggage Tags Nesting Dies.

I added pink embossing paste to the tag with the Dots All Over ARTplorations Stencil.

After the tag dried, I sponged on some deep pink ink onto the card front and the tag, using the Zen Hearts ARTplorations stencil.

I rounded all of the corners of my mixed media bird panel, the yellow mat, and the card base.   Lastly, I assembled the panels to the card and attached the tag sentiment and a bit of turquoise twine. img_7141_edited-1

I had a lot of fun making this tagged card! Make sure you stop by and check out the STAMPlorations Girls’ superb creations!

Grace & Peace,
Melissa

Thanks so much for your encouragement. I greatly appreciate your kind words. Proverbs 16:24 says "Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
