Spring Tags

I decided to create some tags using this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch, which I reversed to accommodate the direction of my bird.  I had a lot of fun creating my background paper with distress oxides and some mixed media stamps from Stamplorations.

Supplies and Tools:
(Maybe you noticed that the sentiment is stamped darker than the mixed media pieces -- I achieved that effect by stamping first in moonlight white ink and then applying tuxedo black over top. The white ink underneath dulls the black to a gray color. Yay for stamping platforms that make things like that possible!)
