The bird image was wet embossed first in order to act as a resist so that I could sponge the sunrise background over it. I added both stencilled & gem stars to create an illusion of the night sky giving way to the dawn as the starling sings lustily. I also have some swirls decorating the back of my tag.

It's a very long time since I used this bird image (2008 I think) so I shall join in Judith's Forgotten Friday 64 with this tag.
