CC2C - Challenge 5

It's week 5 of the Tim Holtz 'Compendium of Curiosities vol 2' challenge on Linda's blog, this week it's kindly sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
Turning to page 48, you'll find the 'how to' for the Shattered Stains technique, which I used for the bird on the branch...
This week, I decided to do a quick tag, as we were away at our friends' house at the weekend...  It was quite showery, so I thought the quote was appropriate!

I added the bird to a black tag - I stamped the quote in picket fence distress stain (and went over it a bit where it wasn't clear in picket fence distress marker), and then inked the background with tumbled glass & picket fence stains, finally adding the stained trim & teardrop 'jewels'.
you can see the shattered stains technique better in this photo!
Back soon!  Kay 


  1. Wow, the shattered stains technique looks terrific on your bird! You've also made the picket fence stain stamping look great - that one has given me fits lol! Great tag :-)

  2. great tag, love that quote, hugs

  3. Kay, this is lovely! The little bird is just perfect with the shattered stains, and the piece really conveys the feeling of a peaceful rain shower. Beautiful work!
