Quarantine Quickie #5 & #6: A Bird in the Hand / Two Peas in a Pod

I am catching up with the daily quarantine quickie prompts on Mission Inspiration and my tag journal is getting fatter every day.  Here are #5 and #6.  I have been using my stash for the backgrounds each time, but I don't think that I'll ever get to the bottom of the pile lol.
For tag #5 I found a piece of paper that I had been sent in happy mail a while back.  Cover a #8 manilla tag and seal, dry and trim the edges.
Stamp one of the hands from the You are not alone set from  Visible Image in Onyx Black Versafine ink and heat emboss in clear powder.
Add two of the small birds from the Clarity Birdhouse Garden set in the same manner.
Stamp New Design Club #86 (Robin) onto Clarity stencil card in Sepia Versafine ink and heat emboss it in clear embossing powder.
Colour the image using Inktense pencils and blend with a water brush pen.  Fussy cut the image and add it to the tag.  Cut around the thumb on the tag so the bird sits on the hand.
Add shading around the bird and hand and below the smaller birds using Faber-Castell big brush markers blended out with a Pergamano blending pen and nibs.
To finish, hand write the prompt in a large font using a black micron pen.
For tag #6 I used a piece of Yupo paper covered with alcohol inks from a previous project (see HERE) to cover a second #8 manilla tag.  Once again it was sealed, dried (carefully) and trimmed.
Stamp Clarity New Design Club #102 (Alice) in Onyx Black Versafine ink directly onto stencil card.  Stamp it a second time onto the rectangle gel press petite and add the second image to the stencil card to create a mirror image.  Go over the lines in a micron pen to sharpen them up. 
Dry the ink thoroughly, seal with matte medium and dry again.  Colour with Faber-Castell big brush markers blended out.
Fussy cut the images and add them to the tag.
Add shading below and around the images using big brush markers.
To finish, hand write the prompt in the same font as the previous tag using a black micron pen.
