SAME - bird in a cage tag

it has been a quiet week for me for scrapbooking. my mojo has got up and went somewhere. No that is not true. it just seems i have so much to do and i am not sure where to start so nothing is getting done. I did however manage this week to clean up my scrappy room some. Chaos breeds chaos in my life so perhaps today is the start of a new cycle of scrappy goodness.
 So for today's same i was TOTALLY inspired by Rangers Blog and a tag designed by his greatness Tim. here is my take on the said tag.

so i started with a Tim tag and an emboss board as well as walnut stain ink. i rubbed the ink right on the embossing board prior to placing the tag

this is what it turned out like

then it was time to cut out the cage and bird from grungeboard and stamp onto the bird

and then this.. well i had a brilliant plan and this was going to be the start of it. unfortunately it didn't work out. i wanted to make my own beads, perhaps use a bit of alcohol ink and then glossy accents..well i am not sure if it was my patience that ran out and i didn't let them dry correctly or if i had done something wrong.. they crumbled prior to me being able to do anything with them. never fear though, i will try again!!!

so here is the bird and tag all inked up pretty!!
here is a part of my stash of Tim goodness to attach to tags and layouts!

and here it is all put together for the most part


and here is my finished project!!! 


So i hope you enjoyed today and that you have obtained some great inspiration from the Tim tag. Be sure to head on over to Ranger to see the complete instructions for Tim's tag!!!

HAPPY SCRAPPING!!!
