Butterflies


 Hi everyone, hope you had a good week. I have a tag to share today that has a layered stamped background to both the base and the upper layer using colouring Dylusions inks, Penny Black Social Butterfly stamps and Kaisercraft texture stamps.



The large butterfly is part of the Penny Black set and is stamped onto coloured inked card, cut out and shaped a bit for some dimension. I cut the flowers using the Tim Holtz tattered garlands die and again from inked card this time using fired brick distress ink and I've stamped over some of them with the butterfly stamps. The butterfly stamps have also been used to create the layered backgrounds, as the base layer in black.

I'm entering my tag into the Craft-room challenge - Here comes summer (butterflies, vibrant colour)
Sugar Creek Hollow - Mixed Media - I have cotton lace, inking, stamping, acrylic paint etc. Hope it counts :)
