Tag time!!!!

Happy Friday evening folks!

How's your week been? I'm looking forward to the weekend I can tell you.  Let's hope it's a quiet one!

I had a nice lazy start this morning ...... no early alarm going off.   Hubby was on a late start (along with the rest of the office!) after yesterday's 'off site' day ....... told you he'd be late home and yes .... he'd had just a little bit to drink!!!

Anyway ...... today I've finally managed to make time to join in with Tim's 12 Tags again.  I can't believe I've missed the last two!!!!

Wasn't sure how I was going to do this one ...... haven't got the stamps, or the papers.  Couldn't even decide on a theme for it .... and with July being almost over I didn't want to copy the whole 4th July thing.
So ....... what was out on my desk ......... only these little guys ......

I've still followed all the techniques ....... used the watercolour paper to stamp on and then coloured the images using Distress Markers and a waterbrush .....

Applied the brand new Distress Micro-Glaze over the birds and polished away the excess .....

Then added a wash of colour to the background ...... the glaze acts as a resist to the ink so any excess on the birds can just be wiped away with a piece of kitchen towel .... clever or what!

I love how it's created a sort of halo effect around the birds too, and the texture in the watercolour card really shows through ..... love it!!

I added some large Chit Chat stickers to make up the sentiment .....

and a few Black Soot ink splats here and there......

And to finish, I used my Distress Markers to colour a piece of the crinkle ribbon to match ......

All done ..... with a few hours to spare!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your evening and have a lovely weekend.

Cheerio until next time
