What a Lovely idea Arbor Day
In America yesterday it was Arbor day or so Rebecca of Tag Tuesday explains. In recognition of this the theme for this week is is a Tree or trees. The is something inspiring about a tree the timelessness they change with the seasons while remaining unchanging. I like trees.
For this tag I have used Tando Wavy tag and the smaller of their Leaf Branch. The tag has been coloured with Nick Bantock inks and then a Elusive Images tree stamped over the top. The leaf Branch was placed on the tag and coloured to match the areas of the tag it would cover, the stamp was used on the tag when it was coloured. Leaf Branch glued to tag. Clarities flight of birds stamped top left but it is not clear in the picture. The whole was then blasted with Glimmer Mist.
LB bird stamped onto card in Adirondack Espresso and then water coloured with Adirondack Butterscotch and Pebble. Bird cut out and settled on branch.
Wednesday stamper has a theme of 'no words' the challenge being to create something where the images do the talking you can use words but they are secondary. Hopefully this tag celebrates trees without words.
