TAG IT ON

Me again,
I'm feeling inspired today :-D
I was browsing Black Dragon's blog when I saw a challenge over at Dragon's Dream, where they do a thing called Tag It On. The theme this time  is 'Bird Song'  - a novel about WW1 by Sebastian Faulks - and I was totally inspired by the story and the gorgeous creations over at Dragon's Dream.  Now, I'm not usually one for making tags - I've only ever done 3 I think, - but I recently sent off for some tags to have a play. So, here is my effort.....




I have used several images for the background and superimposed them upon each other. The lady is from itKuPiLLi, ribbon is from my stash, the rose I made myself, and the bird is a die-cut... one of a few I bought from a sweet friend Linda who is selling them at her Blog shop. Go to Scrapcat Cards by Linda to get some great die-cuts at super prices. It's a great way to get them as I couldn't afford all those cartridges she has for her Cricut !!!! I also added some extra cut out barbed wire over the top.
I hope you like my effort :-) xxxx
