Tags I did with Hilda - updated!

I have now added the finishing touches to the tags I did with Hilda when I visited her in the UK a couple of weeks ago.

I have not changed the tag on the left as I was happy with the way it came out. I added some crackle paint to the bird as well as a little black bling dot for the eye. I also added some distress stickles to the branch the bird is standing on.

I attached a metal flower and leaves to the bottom of the tag. Both of the tags are inspired by Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2012.

Hilda went to a class with Hels Sheriden who is a designer and contributor to the Craft Stamper magazine. She had done this tag and folder at the class and thought I would enjoy doing a similar one. This picture shows the finished folder with the tag inside it.

The picture below shows the folder open, with the tag sitting on top of the folder.

This was a fun project to do and I am so grateful to Hilda for allowing me some of her precious time to be with her and for sharing very generously the materials and the lovely goodie bag that she gave me, filled with lots of lovely crafty things including lace, fibres, a little star box to decorate, stamped images, tags (lots of them!) paper napkins and die cuts. Thanks so much Hilda!
