Use your wings...fly away

It's time for another technique remix from Tim!  This time he chose Tissue Wrap Collage from January 2015 and Stencil Plaid from June 2015.

I don't have the plain tissue wrap but went with the Terminology tissue wrap already on my desk.  I also don't have the new substrate he used so I substituted sticky-back canvas.  Isn't the vintage distress collage medium cool?  Love the effect!  Not to copy, I selected the feather (Feather Duo die) and mini stencil 24 (chevron)...this looked like a better fit for the feather.

Because I was too lazy to go downstairs and uncover my sewing machine (and the piles on it!) I did the Feather Stitch by hand using some embroidery thread to coordinate with the colors I chose for my tag (Frayed Burlap, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon).

My embellishments include a Token Tag (Mermaid Lagoon distress paint rubbed into the lettering) and Botanical Remnant rub-ons.  The silk ribbon was from a package I recently received The Funkie Junkie.  (She always included the coolest little envelopes filled with ephemera and tied up with a bit of hand-dyed silk ribbon.)  Using one of the Crazy Bird stamps and dies was a must for this theme!  The bird also got the Stencil Plaid technique used on it.

While Tim's tag would make a great Father's Day card or fit the bill for any masculine card, I really wanted to create my own version and not copy his.  Besides, my father is no longer here on earth and I had already made my step-father a card to recognize his place in my life.

I hope you're enjoying the technique remixes monthly challenge!
