Stampendous Songbird

My first Stampendous Project for the Blog Star Team!  How exciting this is...I hope I can exceed the expectations :)

If you know me, you know I love TAGS!  Tags are great for perfecting your techniques.  I keep all of mine together on big rings.  When I need inspiration I turn to my rings of tags.  When I need a quick card, I've been known to grab a tag and the hard work of the card is done :)  So with my love of tags I chose to make a tag for Stampendous. 

I  love the Jumbo Stamps from Stampendous.  Each is unique and bold with a lot of detail.
Here, I've used Songbird and the swirl from Jumbo Tulip.

First I started by stamping and embossing Songbird with chunky and detail clear powders on super smooth white card stock.  I then worked my lightest background colors (distressed inks). Now, stamp and emboss the swirl...again, with chunky and fine clear powders.  Continue inking until the desired look is achieved.  Now that your inking is done, take a paper towel and lightly mist with water, wipe ink off of embossed areas.  This is why I used distressed inks.  Finish with embossing the edges with 2 powders, vintage mahogany and aged gold.  Tie your ribbons and o-la-la all done...well, I thought I was until I decided to ad a little tag using crown charm it's done. 

I hope you found a little inspiration from this project!

Here is another quick list of what I used
