Butterfly Tag

A change from cards, here's a little tag that I made.

I used an ordinary luggage tag and sponged Early Espresso, Pacific Point and Pretty in Pink over it using my Sponge Daubers.  I then stamped a Butterfly from Butterfly Prints in Pacific Point after stamping first onto some scrap.  I attached a Perfect Plum butterfly cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and attached to a Whisper White circle which I had also sponged.  Then added a few more butterflies in Perfect Plum and Melon Mambo.  Finally I added some Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.

The inks were ones I had sitting on my desk, as was the stamp set and the butterflies were from my shapes tub (extras that had been cut out previously).

To be honest I'm not sure if the grungy look is me perhaps I'm too clean and precise but it was fun just going with the flow and seeing what emerged.  I'm sure I'll have another play some other time.

Thanks for your visit and comments.  A big welcome goes out to Stacey, thanks for following!
