Art Tag



Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the summer and making the most of the 
lovely weather we have been having.


Today I bring you a tag which has been coloured,
blended distress inks.


Spiced Marmalade, Rusty hinge, Broken china and Faded jeans,
were all blended off a craft mat onto a manilla tag.


Metallic ferro from viva deco was used through a CW stencil.


Black card was put through a Tim Holtz die.


taking a white pen i wrote butterflies on the art die cut card. mainly to cover
as the glue had got onto the front of the die cut.



I stamped the Tim Holtz stamps on the bottom and the small 
butterfly's up the left hand side of the tag.


On a separate piece of card I restamped the butterfly and embossed it.


I glued the two bits over the tag and highlighted with treasure
gold.


For the main body of the butterfly I used beads from my stash. 


Well that's it for today. Thank you for reading through I would love to read your
 thoughts on my work so please don't be shy and as I am house 
bound at the moment it will give me something to do and
 I could pop over and visit your blog's.

I love this Dee, writing on the black letters was an inspired way to cover the glue! The butterfly is gorgeous too.
