Ding Dong Merrily a Tag

Hello.  Welcome.  Back with PaperArtsy inspiration and Lin's lovely paper tape background caught my eye.  Didn't have any of the lovely tapes or colours she used but did have some in shades of blue sent by my CCC buddy Janet.  I decided to do a little stamping as well and the MME Indie Chic stamps were still out so that helped the idea come together.  

I applied pieces of paper tape to a white tag, with some stamping here and there.  The tape measure, zig zag and birds of a feather are all stamps from MME Ginger Pictures stamp set.  Then I gave it a wash of diluted Pea Coat to tie it together

I added some white paint splats using Crafty Individuals splat stamp and stamped Ding Dong Bird in black.  Then I had a moment and made a collage of some Prima Fairy Belle flowers, stamped Ding Dong bird again and fussy cut.  The words are from PaperArtsy EDY06 stamp set and the little roundelle is part of a LPC003 stamp.  A brad and some fancy fibre and he's good to go.
