I was so excited when I saw this Months tag Tim Holtz is really bringing some colour and fun into the tag this month with what is a huge symbol in my life Butterflies. And better yet I actually had all the right product to do my own take on this months tag.
I am super happy with how it turned out, the only thing being that the pic does not show up the Alcohol Ink background technique,
When I saw the original tag I knew I had to have a play, making fluttering butterflies has been a staple of my crafting since I first began my tentative steps into the wonderful world of papercrafting. In fact I was heartbroken last year when my favorite butterfly punch (I own very few punches as I really do not use them much but this one I used a lot) died it was only $2 and I got a good 8 years out of it so not to bad at all anyway The New Butterfly frenzy die makes me very happy as it is much easier to use than a punch and gives loads of shapes and sizes.
So here is my Tag, I decided I wanted to use my New French Flight Framelits and Stamp Set and so below is my take on this Months tag 🙂
I was really happy at how this one turned out, her favourite colour is Purple.
This is my first time playing with Dylusions Ink sprays and what I really loved most was the effects you could create and that you can blend colours without loosing the colour integrity of either colour was fun to experiment especially on the leaves.
The Dies are Tattered Banners, Tattered Pinecone, Butterfly Strip Die, and Susan’s Garden Window Box.
I also added a little bling and a random word stamp as well as a SeeD’s Happy Birthday stamp stamped in weathered Wood
You do not want to know how long this took me to do, as it was not planned beyond the window box die though I am really happy with how it has turned out. There was a little home made pearl mist used as well as you can see from the sparkle. Not the best Pic as I recently figured out I had my camera on the wrong settings. All sorted now 🙂 thank goodness
