My First Guest DT slot!

Here are the tags that I've made for my first guest DT slot which is with Tuesday Taggers. The theme this week is Tag it with Birds. I've done these on shiny card stock and stamped first in versamark with the Hero Arts leaf flourish. I then used a circular mask and applied distress inks. The first has the flourish stamped again in Tea dye distress ink and highlighted with white gel pen. the second has a Lavinia stamp (vine) stamped in majestic blue versafine. Both tags feature birds and branches from the Tranquil plate by Innovative Stamp Creations, stamped in black versafine. I had such fun making these. My fingers went from looking like I chain smoked to looking like I'd bruised them very badly! I got a funny look at the till in Sainsburys!
It is such a lovely theme so why don't you pop over and have a go too?

Congrats on your DT spot, Sally, I saw your photo over on Tuesday taggers earlier!!
These bird tags are just gorgeous. I love them both. The swirl at the top is beautiful and the colours are so soft and ethereal.
I know what you mean about inky fingers, it seems to be a permanent state of affairs with me.
I'm off to think about a bird tag, although it won't be a patch on yours.
