Sing and be happy

I have made this  tag for the new challenge theme over at 
Things with wings

An opportunity to have a play with a couple of the new Oxide inks that everyone has been talking about recently.
This is one of my first results and I think I like the chalky colours , but I,  for sure need more practice.
The tag was layered with a few scraps, material, lace  and some computer generated words, to cover  the original words on the stamp which looked blurred on my  image..
I want her to sing because she looks  a bit sad to me, doesn't she realise she can fly away and enjoy herself.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are always welcome here.


  1. I think the way you have used the Oxide inks looks fabulous! I love how you have added your fabric scraps! This is a a happy tag despite your little fairy looking so sad! Hugs, Chrisx

  2. Love her music note wings and the pretty background!! I will have to check out these Oxide inks...haven't heard of them before, but I like the chalky look!

  3. Always happy, not sure about singing, may scare the birds away. lovey tag and great use of the oxides.x ♥[aNNie]

  4. The background looks wonderful Yvonne so looks like you got the Oxides spot on. This made me smile as it has everything I love on a tag including the touch of humour with the stern child being encouraged to sing . Wonderful! Thank you for supporting us at Try it on Tuesday

    Love Chrissie xx

  13. Your little girl looks anything but happy, Yvonne! But I love the tag. It makes me think of parents telling their kids that they should: be happy, not be bored, or eat all their peas "because starving children in China would love those peas." lol.
