Tropical Tags

Today I was playing with the Jumbo Parrot Stamp from Stampendous and this is what I created...tags.

The parrot in this tag is made  of cold porcelain. You can find recipes on you tube.
I made the porcelain, stamped the image, cut the excess off and left the image to air dry for a few days. I used watercolor paper to create the background. I stamped the leaves using Versamark then used clear embossing powder. I  used watercolor pencils and my inkpads to color in the leaves and the background. I added some aged embossing enamel for the grass and around the edges of the tag. I finished with some fibers on the bottom border. The background was sprayed with glimmer mist in green and yellow and the parrot has blue pearl ex on the feathers.
The top image is stamped on cardstock and the bottom one is the porcelain. You can see it shrinks a bit.

The image on the left is the parrot stamped on regular cardstock and the one on the right is the back  of the porcelain one. I left it unpainted so you could see what it looks like.
Materials used:
Stampendous Jumbo Parrot Stamp
Stampendous aged teal embossing enamel
Clear embossing powder
Watercolor pencils, inks
Pearl Ex powders
