Tags for a Swap

These tags were made for 2 Tag Swaps.  The first I inked the edges of the tag with Palette Ink (Green Leaf), added K & Co. paper.  The bird and birdcage were cut using Tim Holtz's Bird and Cage die.  They were cut from some thin, black chipboard I had.  After I cut the birds I embossed them with Cuttlebug's Swirls die and used Gold and Green Patina Pearl Effects to bring out the texture.  The birdcage was painted with Picket Fence crackle paint.  The butterfly charm was made with shrink plastic (Inkadinkado's Mindscape's butterfly image).  The cage was finished off with pink dew drops.  

The second tag was made with Cosmo Cricket's Get Campy paper.  The images are from Heartfelt Creations (and I used their matching dies for the leaves).  The rhinestones were some I had on hand (from Michael's, I think).  Thanks for looking!!
