A Yahoo group challenge

This week our yahoo group leader Lori challenged us to make a tag based on Wendy's first book page 10. Under the rules of the challenge I can't tell you how to do this.

Wendy calls this technique "perfect stamping" and it's a variation of Tim's "wrinkle free distress" technique.  It involves perfect pearls.

Here is my tag. I used weathered wood and broken china on the base tag. The tree is "crooked limb" from Stampscapes.  The bird was stamped in brown stazon on grungepaper.
The technique shows up better here before I finished it!  I haven't done this version of this technique before, despite having had the book for ages - it was great fun. (although the first one I did was a bit too splodgy!)
