Spring is in the Air

Today I am sharing a Spring Themed Tag I made for the Art for the Creative Mind Yahoo Group April tag swap. Spring reminds me of birds, new beginnings, Easter dresses, buds on tress, and pastel colors.

I started by digitally collaging together 5 images from the Graphics Fairy. I then digitally cut around it to make a dress shape.

I used Gathered Twigs and Broken China Distress ink along with a Tim Holtz stamp from the Papillon Set for the background of my tag.

Next, I die cut out my wings and inked them with Victorian Velvet Distress ink. For some added interest I used a Tim Holtz background stamp and Victorian Velvet Distress Stain.

Lastly I added my beginnings saying and some fabric flower trim that I colored with Victorian Velvet Distress Stain.

I am submitting this to 2 Challenges: The Simon Says Stamp Easter challenge (for my collaged Easter dress and pastel colors) and the Frilly and Funkie Flight of Fancy challenge (for my bird nest and wings).  As always thank so much for stopping by.


  1. Such an unusual way to use your digital image Stacy. A great design. Thank you so much for joining us at Frilly and Funkie with this. Jenny x

  2. This tag is gorgeous, Stacy! I love the wings and the details on the dress. Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Happy Easter or Sweet Treats!
