Flying Hummingbird Tag (Designs by Ryn - Flying Hummingbird)

I part made a tag last week, but didn't finish it till this morning.  It is a tag of many layers!

I started by using two  Distress Oxide inks: - Antique Linen and Tea Dye using the swishing through the ink on the mat technque to cover the surface.

Using the "Peeled Paint" Distress Oxide, I stamped the Stampin' Up "Crackle Paint" stamp over the beige background.  

I used a Crafters Companion Script stamp in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" shade of ink on top of the cracked surface.

Using Versafine Clair "Chianti" ink, which is a deep red shade I stamped the Designs By Ryn "Flying Hummingbird 2" stamp.  I masked the bird off, then stamped random circles using a Visbile Image stamp set called "You are not alone" and the "Hope" word which is part of another Visible Image stamp set called "Peace, Love and Hope".  I then used a lines stamp from a Stampin' Up set called "Gorgeous Grunge" stamped using the same "Chianti" ink.

Finally, I inked the edges of the tag and coloured some of the bird using a gold metallic pen.  I used a white Signo Pen to highlight the bird and some of the "Hope" word.
