Have been playing with my distress stains again, creating backgrounds on tags. Autumnal colours gave me inspiration for this one, and so as not to cover it all up, I simply stamped the bird and the foliage from T!m's urban stamp plate.
And then I got my greens out and this background evolved. I dug out a Creative Expressions stamp plate that I haven't used for ages and collaged the stamps using timber brown Stazon. I over stamped some of the images in picket fence distress stain. I dried them immediately so as to retain more of the colour.
