A tag with a butterfly
Finally yesterday I managed to get inky, finally because it was gone 6 when this tag was started. Just wanted to get the inks out and play as you do, so Try it on Tuesday's challenge came to mind.
Cut the tag in the nestie and then blended various DI over it. Before stamping the tag a couple of blasts of Glimmer mists added sparkle and a little distress to the inks. With the exception of the scrip all the stamps used are Eco Green, Garden Chic stamped on the tag with DI. The script lightly touched and more faded than not is a La Blanche stamp.
The Butterfly, also Eco Green, stamped in brown stayzon onto acetate and then coloured with permanent markers on the reverse, butterfly cut out. Acetate is great to work with but attaching it can be a problem. To get round this three sequins were coloured with the same permanent markers and glued with silicon glue to the body, silicon glue also used to attach it to the tag.
Here it is then an invitation to summer to join us. Here is a list of challenge's whose invitation to play along with I'v accepted. Thank's again to Feline Playful for maintaining a smashing challenge list.
