I love the quirkiness of ARTchix Studio’s Birdy Paper Dolls collage sheet. With so much personality, they are really fun to work with. After creating this tag, I wanted to a little bit more to bring out the character and charm of the birds, instead of just leaving it as-is. Orange embossed spider webs on a black background felt like the perfect solution.
