Butterfly tag !

For my Katzelkraft DT project I've made another jumbo tag ! I've used the new Spring DI colours, just love the Peacock Feathers colour, and also Ripe Persimmon from the Autumn set. Blended over the tag and then used the masks I made using the Elegant Flourishes die.

I stamped over the background with various stamps from Fleurs Grunge, Hummingbirds and the Paris Postal sets. I then stamped the butterflies from the Wings set onto watercolour paper and painted them using Distress Markers.

I masked them off and then stamped the text from the Nature Quotes set with white acrylic paint. I dried it off and then blended DI over the top, spritzed a piece of kitchen roll and wiped it over the top.

I used a piece of TH Tissue Wrap behind the centre panel, and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain DI.

The flower is my first real dabble with Kraft Glassine paper. I saw this in the latest Craft Stamper magazine and loved it ! It's made using the Tattered Florals and Mini Tattered Florals dies, Walnut Stain DI and a Hitch Fastener for the centre.

I'm entering this tag into the following challenges:


  1. Hi Sue absolutely yummy tag, beautiful background, seems a shame to cover it up, but the stamped butterflies are amazing. xx
