I really enjoyed making this tag, it might not be much to look at but it was fun making it ,, I got more ink on me than on the tag and my hands were a horrid shade of green for hours ( I need to buy a scrubbie) bit it was worth it :-)

I started with a tag ,,,and coloured with various distress stains. when it was completely dry I used a Dyan Reavey mask and sponged with Stormy Sky Distress ink, then brushed over with Blue Smoke Perfect Pearls. I used a strip of Tissue Tape down the left side edge and then stamped the butterflies from an Attic Treasures set. I then stamped them again onto watercolour paper and coloured them with the brand new Distress markers. These were a gift from Ranger when I attended a Tim Holtz class at the CHA , I have 6 of them ,, now need to buy the rest of them ,,, 31 to go ,,,, !!! I used an Elegant Flourishes die to cut out some grungepaper and I coloured this with Vintage Photo DI then embossed with Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder. I stamped the Paris, London stamp in the top R corner and added a Fleur de Lys charm, The ticket was made using a Ticket Strip Die and an Odds and Ends stamp, I used some bias tape, coloured with stains and then I finished with oodles of Rock Candy stickles on the butterflies.

Thanks for looking :-) Our fabulous Designer in the Spotlight, Linda, has made a gorgeous tag,, as have all the DT, so pop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them !

Now its your turn to get inky ,,,, Happy Crafting !! Smile
