Die~Namites Dies "Bullfinch" Tag & Tutorial by Peggy Lee

Happy Wednesday to you all! Can't believe September is here...which got me thinking,
the Holidays are just around the corner! When I received my DT package with this "Bullfinch" die 
I knew I wanted to create a Holiday Tag (get a jump start on my Holiday gifts)!!
Now I know bullfinch is suppose to be a few colorful tones of color....but 
this little bird die cut was calling red tones to the little berries on this die too!


Here is how I colored the Die~Namites Die "Bullfinch".
Step 1.
Die cut out of white card stock (I die cut many).
You only need two for this project.

Step 2.
Time to color your die cut pieces.
I used Distress ink from Ranger in brown tones...

as well as red tones....

Step 3
Create your background for your tag...
I used Distress inks, splashing water, stamping, stencils with gesso.

That's it, now here are some close up photos...enjoy!
I glued one layer of the die cut down onto the screen window...
Then popped up the other die cut pieces I cut give depth!

I grabbed extra supplies I had laying around my desk to create this tag...
I keep all my scraps and see what you can do!

Thanks for stopping by today!
