Good morning everyone
This week over at Try it on Tuesday it's tag week and the theme is butterflies. There's loads of inspiring samples from my fellow team-mates so I hope you will pop over and take a look.
Here is my tag.
The colours are not too great, darn camera but still. I used two tags, the bottom one is partly embossed before adding some random paint with a pearl paint dabber. When it was dry some sanding before adding colours in blues and purples.
The second tag was just coloured and stamped in forest moss
I made the flower from a piece of paper I made using the tattered floral die and also a grunge rose for the middle.
The butterfly is chipboard and I triple embossed with normal embossing powders in purple and stamped with a Tim Holtz atc stamp.
Hope you enjoy your day, I'll be here a couple of times today as there's a lot going on!

Hi Neil, beautiful tag. Love the colours - quite inspiring, I just wish I had a fraction of your talent. Your paper tutorial is brilliant and the technique is one I will just have to try. Elizabeth (Silverscrapper)
