Watch the birdie!

Yesterday while throwing out some old magazines I found some lovely images in our winter copy of the RSPB magazine - perfect for image transfers so tricked myself into thinking that if I did them straight away I wouldn't have to store the pieces of paper lol! I had something in mind - while at Hels' fabulous workshop on Sunday I found myself promising I would take part in this weeks Sunday Stamper challenge - the theme being "BIRDS" so here is my little tag using one of the transfers which I did using Claudine Helmuth sticky back canvas and matte gel medium.
The stamped images are Paper Artsy and the word is part of an old Elusive Images stamp.I very stooopidly tried to highlight the bird by using a waterbrush - no! no! no!
The rest of the images are made in the same way - I do love this technique although I like image transfers made any way!

As I made these Gwen at Foxglovehill was using her latest copy of her RSPB mag to make her own transfers - if I'd charged my camera batteries up our posts would have appeared at almost the same time - as it is I've been busy today and only just got around to doing this and its late(very late for me)!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Thanks for looking, Chris

Just come back to say I've also added this to the Simon Says stamp and show blog challenge - A tag!
