I recently came across a challenge blog called Dragrons Dream Tag It On (TIO) and am really enjoying the unique challenges they present us with each Wednesday. This week, our challenge is based on the novel "Bird Song." I must confess I was not familiar with the book, but I researched the plot and found it is based on WW 1, takes place in Paris and London, and involves romance and intrigue. Luckily, I also learned that PBS is airing Bird Song on Masterpiece Theater in April, so I hope to check it out. Looks like a good read, too! My tag includes images from a Miniature Book by Crafty Individuals, as well as stamped images from the Bluebird plate by Artistic Outpost. My tag began with a Mushroom colored card stock cut into a tag shape. As I studied the clip art images, I decided to pull out my PanPastels and voila, a mottled background of lavender, pink and purple! I began with white lace, but abandoned it for the intrigue of black lace. Oh the drama! A few pearls for the lady, some vintage black seam binding and a teacup for England, a magenta brad and some colorful braid for the top of my tag and my card is complete.
