Included in our goodie bag we received at craft camp, were these cute scribbly bird stamps and some Prima glossy coloured tags (along with heaps more fabulous goodies - we were very spoilt).
I don't have any SU colours, but I am hoping the glossy yellow tag base with a hint of Dried Marigold distress ink swished over it is very close to SU Daffodil Delight. To make Bermuda Bay, I used a foam blending tool and stencils with Peacock Blue, Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough distress inks. Aged Mahogany was a used in lieu of Rich Razzleberry.
After stenciling the colours over the tag with an MFT spiderweb stencil, I stamped the birds on smooth white cardstock, coloured with daubers and a combination of the colours listed above then fussy cut.
The small black dots in the right hand corner are part of a Penny Black tree stamp. The water drops are hand drawn using a tutorial by Lydia. Use a micron pen to draw a rough circle, fill about a third of the circle in with black pen, make tiny dots under the filled in bit and under the outside edge of the circle. Add a bit of white using a Sharpie paint pen.
Adhere the dirds using 3D foam tape, then draw on the legs to big bird. The long stick things with dots (doo-hickies as Stamperrobin christened them) were also done free hand with a black micron pen and sharpie white pen.
I only buy eggshell coloured Hug Snug seam binding ribbon as it is very easy to colour and it is not quite as harsh as white. The ribbon was coloured by smacking a cracked pistachio distress ink pad onto a bit of al foil and squirt on lots of water. Next, take a length of ribbon, scrunch it up into the palm of your hand and squirt in lots of water. Dab the scrunched up ribbon in the coloured inky water. I wanted a blotchy tie-dye effect, but you can colour the entire piece of ribbon evenly.
For desert, I added a little fence. Thank you for looking.

Really Cool Tag!!! The dew drops on the spider web in the garden your little feathered friends are visiting this particular morning are wonderfully done. Love your little birdies! Looks like they shop for their leggings at the same store as Long Tall Sally and her friend. Thanks for sharing your delightful creations! They always put an extra smile in my day.

Oh how I have missed your cards and most of all your tall tales and descriptions of the characters filling your cards. Love these cute little birdies - but can foresee problems in the future - with the one with tall legs - oh my aching knees just looking at those legs. Come to think of it I don't think I can see knees on him/her. Gorgeous tag.
