Tag card

This card was choosen for the top 5 on the ABC challenge blog

I don't use my stamps and inks often enough and when I new that Lynne Gilbert was demonstrating at her craft club I went along to see her demonstration. She skillfully provided a great demonstration for making backgrounds using ink and torn paper including moon shadowing.
The background on my card was made using the technique she demonstrated using a torn paper layer and stippling different layers with inks and a shaving brush. By moving the torn paper across the card it gives the impression of hills in the background. The tag background was made in the same way except the moon was blocked out with a circle shape and then lightly covered with a different shade of colour after the circle was removed. I stamped a bird in Purple and cut it out. I put half on the tag and half on the card. I used different swirly stamps on the tag which were stamped with clear ink and then brushed over with shimmer powder. I added a large diamonte brad and chiffon ribbon to the tag. The bird at the base of the tag is a die cut from the Tim holtz collection which I stippled with Purple ink. I used a few lace flowers, stick on jewels, flora doodle flowers and silver hat pins to finish off the card. I have netered my card in several challenges this week and they are listed below.
