I’m still on the “paper crinkling” kick.  I didn’t have the die that Tim used, but I had the “Movers and Shapers” small bird and bird cage, so I used the bird and another Sizzex die I have for the branch.

I embossed the tag with a “Textured Impressions”  frame from Sizzex after I adhered the crinkled paper over it.  I liked the way the scroll work on the frame echoed the curves on the branch.  I ended up dry brushing the branch with acrylic paint.  I don’t have many different colored embossing powders and you sure can’t find many in stores anymore.

The “Journey” is an old “Clearly Yours” from Studio K.  I never throw anything away.  I added the little crown and key embellishments from Tim.  The paper flower is from Making Memories “Garden Party”, Blossoms & Buttons.  I ended up dying it with “Tea Dye” and “Vintage Photo” (just tapped the stamping pads on my craft sheet and diluted a little with water spray; then dipped the tips of the flower in and sprayed it more with water to lighter the stain a little)
