January Tag

This tag was inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2015 Challenge.  I used some Melange Tissue wrap for the base and "finger painted" on some watered down Americana paints in Coral Blush, Whispering Turquoise, Bahama Blue and Mint Julep Green.  I rubbed some Deep Midnight Blue on the edges and also splattered some over the tag.  I used white embossing powder with a bird stamp which didn't really show up very well.  I cut the numbers out of cardstock and embossed them with gold embossing powder.  Added a homemade paper flower some ribbon and eyelash yard, a little bling, a feather from my bird and a little wooden bird to complete it.  The words I just stamped with alphabet stamps and "dirtied" them up with some paint and distress ink.  I didn't really like the way they turned out but. . . Otherwise I was happy with how it turned out.
