Tag for Crafty Individuals

It's May, a new challenge has started at Crafty Individuals and the theme is about music.
I have interpreted this in my own way (as I do ....) and taken a play on the word 'song' in the caption used on my tag.

Process steps -
Blend distress inks old paper, evergreen bough and weathered wood with a blending tool and mist with stormy sky and peeled paint mix in a mister. Blend the edges with frayed burlap - spritz and flick with water and heat dry.

Stamp CI 430 with stormy sky and frayed burlap and heat dry. I love the distressed pattern and collage effects of this stamp, it's perfect for creating backgrounds.

Stamp various stamps from the collection CI 329 and also add some stamped card collage pieces.

I also added some drawn lines between the mini tag and the birds to make it look as though they are holding it between them. Add a bow ........

..... and sentiment or quote to finish it off.

I hope you can join us in the challenge this month. Jean is always very generous with her prizes and discounts so pop over to the Crafty Individuals blog to see what Jean has in store for this challenge.
