Unity Stamp Co. Tag A Day Challenge

This week Unity Stamp Co. is having a Tag A Day Challenge so I decided to have a little fun and play along. This Challenge is on Unity's Show and Tell Facebook Page found here:

 Here's my tag for today:

I decided to create my own woodgrain tag by embossing a tag that I had inked in Colorbox Fluid Chalk in Chestnut.  I chose daubing the brown ink in because I felt like the light and dark effect of the process would add more visual interest than using a solid brown cardstock.  I inked the tag first and then embossed and I absolutely LOVE the way it turned out.  It looked so good I didn't want to cover it up.... so I didn't.  I put my bird to one side and the sentiment to the other and I was thrilled that so much of the woodgrain still showed! 
The stamp set I used was a Stamp of the Week Stamp set called "Bird with a French Fry" by Unity, you can find that stamp here:
The woodgrain embossing folder was by Darice, Tags, cardstock, and DP from Inventory, Coloring of bird and flowers was done with Copics, and Inks Used were Memento Tuxedo Black and Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Chestnut.
Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs & blessings!  Tina
