Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog. Here is a tag I made with a Spring theme. I am so ready for Spring as I know most of you are. As most of my stamping friends know, I love birds and birds remind me of Spring so I had to use them on my tag.

I smooshed my background using acrylic paints and spritzs of water. I added music and bird washi tape randomly on the tag. I stamped the image and used black embossing powder to accent it more. I used Tim Holtz's Bubble stencil and white matte stencil paste over some areas of the tag. Sparkle embossing powder (courtesy of Sparkle N Sprinkle) was sprinkled over the stencil spots and heat set.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Looks so pretty, April. I am ready for Spring too. The painters finish up here on the 26th. I think it will take till the end of the month to get everything put back into place. Then it is onwards to garden work...we had better be fully into Spring by then! lol

Loved the pretty feather charms with this tag!

This is STUNNING! What a talented smoosher you are! That background alone is incredible! The colors really do make me think of Spring and I love how you created several stand-out images by using black. You did a masterful job of combining so many different elements and the dimension you added with the butterfly, ribbon and metal feather embellishments is just amazing. I could stare at this until Spring comes! Thanks for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
