12 Tags of Christmas-Day 9

You can see t!m's example (and Mr & Mrs Stampers Anonymous too!) here:

I'm back to flying to the beat of my own drummer! Or should that be marching?! 

 I used a CTMH Flourish stamp and random stamped my tag using the Limited Edition Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. Then clear embossed it and used the Limited Edition Iced Spruce to cover the rest of the tag and clear embossed the whole thing again. The flourishes really do look like they are raised after you do this technique! The bird is from one of t!m's GrungeBoard collection and I first embossed it in Denim and then came back with Pearl Blue embossing powder to give it some shimmer and shine. "Fly" is from one of the GrungeBoard alphabet collections which I embossed with black and then used Glossy Accents over the top. I used Pitch Black Alcohol Ink to color the wings then sanded them and used some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to "age" them a bit and covered the whole thing in clear embossing powder. The flowers are from my stash and I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age them a bit. Buttons and pearls also from my stash.
