Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I want to show you a tag I made with these sweet chickadees by Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I made the background using the splatter stencil from Tim Holtz and doing the mono printing technique here. I used Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood stains. You can see the white splatters in the middle of the tag.

Next I used white matte embossing paste and Tim Holtz's snowflakes stencil. I added Stickles Diamond glitter glue on the snowflakes to make them sparkle.

                Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. I love those chickadees and the snowflakes look great with your paste. Nice tag!

  2. Wonderful tag April. Love the coloring of your little Chickadees against the snowy background of the tag. Gorgeous work!

  3. This is really beautiful! Chickadees are so pretty! We have a park here in Langley, BC where if you are lucky, and stand very still with bird seed on your hand, the chickadees will light and eat from your hand!

    Your sweet tag made me remember the joy of my grandaughter when they alight on her hand to eat the seed. Thanks for the memory,,,
