Dragonfly Tag


Hi everyone! I have a tag to show today for Katzelkraft Stamps and which I'm entering into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of 'use your favourite stamp'. I've used my favourite stamp of the moment which is the script stamp from Paris KTZ35, I use it a lot, it's the perfect background stamp. It's closely followed by the dragonfly from Papillons 04 which I also use a lot :D! The background is sponged with distress inks, spritzed with shimmer mist over a Prima stencil and I stamped the dragonfly directly onto the tag in brown and then again in Dusty Concord distress ink so that I could cut out the wings to 3d them. 

Lots of sparkle from stickles, fibres, gems, pearls and doodling with brown and gold pens to decorate and some pretty lace on the bottom to finish it off.

Katzelkraft stamps are available here in France and exclusively in the UK at the Craft Barn.

Enjoy your day today :).

Your dragonfly tag is lovely. I love the background colors you used and the dragon fly is amazing. The fibers you used for the embellishment, the lace at the bottom of the tag, the really lovely button and the little "bling" all work together to perfectly accent your tag. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy
