Birds Delight

 I am getting ready for the holidays... and trying to get some tags made up for the gift bags I will be putting my gifts into... so here is one that is not only for that... but also for Grungy Monday...  where Linda has asked that we use a Tim Holtz Perfect Distress Technique...  

Well that sounds great to the average person... but since I am on dial up, it is deadly...  so yesterday I tried to down load the video... I have never been on You Tube... and have never seen a video on my computer... LOL... sounds pre-historic, but that is what dial up is... pre-historic...  PLUS... but it is all I can get for now.. so I am Happy with it??? 

 So I am not sure I got 100% of the technique down... as I could only download 7 minutes of the almost 10 minute video... and that took me 6 hours!!!!  Yikes... I did do other things... as I had to... but I would like to have seen the entire video for that amount of time... 

Oh well... here is my tag, called Birds Delight... 
I used Victorian Velvet on the tag...
My favorite of all time Distress Stain colors... love the richness of it... and I do love the Seedless Preserves Distress ink color too... But I use the Victorian Velvet as directed... and then used the Seedless Preserves to stamp the floral spray...  a TH stamp... that is for sure...  

BUT... I also used a resist pad and  
Inked up the bird from that set of stamps... and used only my perfect pearls on that....  on the tag I used a silver perfect pearl and on the bird I used Sunflower gold, Berry Twist and also smoke blue... love the bird... but would like him to be  little bit darker...  

My flowers were made from some baby wipes that I used to clean up my mess... and then I used some shabby Shutters green Distress Stain and made my wordy leaves...  LOL.. love wordy leaves... nothing like them...  This will go onto a white bag for a special Christmas present... I most likely will use some pale pink tissue to stick out of the top of the bag... so very pretty and feminine... Pinks and Greens...  love it.. 

WEll... I have posted a lot of tags today... hope you have the time to scroll down and see them... lots of love went into all of them... thanks for your comments...  and have a super wonderful day... 
Love, Light and Peace....Bonnie
