Hi there everyone
Hope you are all well. Today I thought I'd share this tag which I made for the Inspiration Emporium challenge which is school themed. Well, as the husband of a dedicated and wonderful teacher, I see things from a slightly different angle perhaps but I'll let you decide.I started out with an over size tag and  used the Tim Holtz Summer Distress inks and one of my masks to create a tangled background. The butterflies are made from the new Tim Holtz tattered wings die.
 Each wing has been layered with  3d foam to create a lovely layered effect and the centres are made with the body of Fanciful Flight.
 I used Dyan Reavely's Further around the Edge stamps and coloured them with Dylusions inks.

 The words are my own and have been stamped with small alphabet stamps.

I had fun with this. I love the funky butterflies. I like being able to use dies differently as it makes them more versatile!
Hope you all have a lovely evening.
