cresc. a poco.

 

Making some delicate floral book paper die cuts was the starting point for this tag, they were pasted over a scrap of printed tissue paper using a background of polka dots.

The bird image (which would make a fine stamp) was found at the British Library (here's the link) and sits on another scrap of tissue paper in the foreground.

I adjusted the values using Distress ink and colored pencils to provide stronger contrast and depth and the text is from some vintage sheet music.

I'm linking up with Simon's Monday challenge, the theme this week is "Beautiful Flowers."
