This is what I did with my feathers

I wanted to make a giant size tag, the one I have made measures 14x10and a half inches. I first of all cover the card with white paper I used inserts out of 12x12 album
I started by inking up the edges of the page, green of cause lol




I then continued to ink up by  useing  ink dusters and distressed ink in shades of green, purple and pink



Then I added two layers of lace to the base of the card. I then  stamped the edges with a lavinia cherry blossom stamp, which I later coloured in. I then added a die cut (tim holtz) bird cage and birds, the feathers, a flower I made some beads and the title
I am going to hang it up inn my craft room, as I like nothing better that to listen to the early morning dawn chorus, I made this tag using that as a theme
