Hi everyone! Another week has gone by too quickly. I am finally starting to feel better and I thank you for your well wishes.
After making so many frilly things the past few weeks, I really felt the need to bring out the inks, paste, glitter and get a bit messy. I've been longing to use my Tim Holtz butterfly duo die and decided to make this tag. Everything used on this tag is from Tim and Ranger.
Beginning with a kraft tag base, I adhered a sheet of paper from Tim's Wallflower collection. The edges were distressed and inked with Vintage Photo and Black Soot inks. Using Tim's Dot Fade Stencil, I applied Ranger Texture Paste and then some Distress Glitter in Antique Linen. After that dried, I applied rub-ons in various spots. I then gave the tag a coat of Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold.
The butterfly was given a coat of Victorian Velvet Ink, raised edges sanded, Frayed Burlap Ink was applied next, followed immediately with clear embossing powder and then heat dried. Black Soot was added to the edges for a bit more definition. A piece of wire was shaped for the butterfly's antennae (is that what they are called?).
The crinkle ribbon was colored with a combination of all the above inks. The typed token and heirloom rose (colored with Victorian Velvet) was attached to the bow with the pin.
Please forgive the quality of this last photo. The lighting wasn't too good today. If you click on each image, you can see a better view.
Well, that's it for me today. I enjoyed making this tag and have a few butterflies already cut waiting for some different colors and shine. Thank you so much for stopping by and your sweet comments. I wish everyone a wonderful week ahead.
