FLY

Time for my take on Day 9 of the Creative Chemistry course and this week I am showcasing the Perfect Distress Mist Technique. All products are available from The Stamp Attic.
This is my background before I added any images/embellishments.  I have used Reinkers and Perfect Pearls to create the background along with a little Distress Ink.
Of course in true Tracy style I could not leave my tag blank so I proceeded to decorate beginning with a little embossing in the background using the Honeycomb Texture Fade, adding a little walnut stain Distress Ink over the raised areas.
I added the bird and branch cut using the Bird Branch die and colouring with Distress Inks adding a little crown for dimension from the Adornments Charms.
For added interest I cut two hearts using the Mini Hearts set, again colouring in the same way as with the background of my tag and embossing with the Honeycomb Texture Fade. I added FLY to Memo Pins for further interest. I also cut two strips using the Vintage Lace strip die coloured with broken china Distress Ink.
I also added the same trim to the top of my tag along with a Gem Clip which I coloured with Alcohol Ink to tone with my background. To complete I added some Trimmings Lavish again coloured in the same way as my tag.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
