Butterfly tag !

For my Eclectic Paperie DT piece this week I've made a jumbo tag using lots of Distress Inks !

I started  by stamping the 2 daisy stamps from the Wendy Vecchi Daisy Art set with Embossing Ink and used white EP.

I then used the Seasonal Distress Inks and blended it over the tag and the embossing. I then wiped over the embossing using a baby wipe.

I then  did some Spritz and Flick and then used the TCW Vine stencil and Peacock Feathers DI.

I used the TCW Mini Swirly Vines stencil with Mowed Lawn DI and the Bingo stencil with Black Soot DI.

I then stamped the butterfly from the Wendy Vecchi Nature's Art set onto to card that I'd blended DI over. I also stamped the butterfly onto some Clearly for Art and molded the wings while it was still warm and glued the Clearly for Art onto the card.

I painted a leaf art part with Fresco Finish paint and stamped the script from the Tim Holtz French Marketplace over it. The sentiment is also from a Wendy Vecchi set and I've cut it up so that it would fit in the tag. I then mounted the tag onto black card to frame it.

Here's a close up to show you how the Clearly for Art keeps its shape.

I'm also entering this into the Country View Crafts challenge which is quotes and sayings - the quote I've used is from the Wendy Vecchi 'Be happy....Make Art' stamp set. 

Hope you have a lovely week end !
