Time for this weeks DT creation for Artistic Outpost and this week I am showcasing the fabulous BIRDS OF A FEATHER plate.
I created the background with Antique Bronze Distress Stain and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, applying the inks to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water and then mopping up the beads of ink with the tag, heat setting and repeating the process until I was happy with the depth of colour.
I also added some background stamping to the tag using the background stamp from the Birds Of A Feather plate and Potting Soil Archival Ink.
A doily has been added to the backdrop and I have then added a circle of card coloured with Distress Stain and Distress Inks, stamping the bird with Potting Soil Archival Ink and adding touches of background stamping.
'Birds of a feather' has been added to a banner and I have included twine for added texture and a brass flower charm for added dimension.
Further dimension has been added with three dimensional blooms, applying Treasure Gold White Fire to the edges of each petal.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
