Strawberry Thief

Tagging along again.
The theme this week is Birds
'Strawberry Thief'

Couldnt resist using a lovely postage stamp I had
featuring William Morris's
 'Strawberry Thief'
 as a starting point
here is a picture of another one
 I forgot to take a picture of the one I used which had less post office ink on it


I cut out a heart, capturing the two little birds at the flower base


and then trimmed off the other two little birds at the top
 making their 'escape' with the strawberries


next I added a feather
and a little nest I made from jute


filled with three little blue spotted Thrush eggs I made from polymer clay
Tag: I chose a pre-printed craft Tag form a lovely set I was given at Christmas,
I think the 'Art and Craft' style background works well with the William Morris design
I topped that with another tag recycled from a greeting card
Tie: Satin ribbon recycled from clothing
Thanks for stopping by

It's a really clever tag Yvonne and your little blue eggs are superb.

Thank you Lynn I enjoyed making it and being able to use up the little miniature eggs which I made some time ago.
