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

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.
