For my tag I cut two using the Tim Holtz Tag die, one from thin chipboard and the second from white card but I also used the Mini Butterfly die inside the tag shape to make an aperture. I used some acrylic paint on the chipboard and when that was dry I stamped the script stamp from the TH French Marketplace stamp set. On the top layer I blended different DI's then stamped the mesh from the Aspects of Design Floral stamp set in Olive Archival ink. Then I stamped the flower trail from the AoD Beautiful Butterflies set. The sentiment is from the AoD Rambling 2 stamp set. The letters are cut using the Vintage Market die and I covered them in Spiced Marmalade DI, stuck them to the tag and then covered them with Glossy Accents. While the GA was still wet I sprinkled tiny gold beads over the top (they went everywhere !).
The butterfly is cut using the TH Mini Butterfly die and I've used the Paint Dabber resist technique, using the text stamp from the TH Market Place stamp set. The flower is made using the TH Tattered Flowers die from Crinoline and has been coloured using Distress Stains - Scattered Straw and Wild Honey. The 'ruffly' ribbon is TH Trimmings that has been coloured using Distress Stains Scattered Straw. To finish off I used some Liquid Pearls and dotted it over the flower trail and onto the centre of the butterfly, added a Philosopy Tag and a Trinket Pin. The little flower charm is from my stash.
