Butterfly Trio Tag

Hi everyone!  It's Diana posting today.  My craft desk is such a huge mess that I could no longer create in the little 4" x 5" clear space that I had left.  The clear area has to be at least as big as a card!  Otherwise I'll accidentally lay a stamped image on top of something like an open ink pad - not that that has ever happened!  Right!  

So while clearing and sorting through the layers of stuff on my desk, I found a scrap sheet where I had smooshed together different Distress Inks and Stains.  It looks like it had most of what I owned:  Brushed Pewter, Picked RaspberryPeacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, Broken China, and Squeezed Lemonade. I just love how you can't go wrong mixing any of these colors together.  I die cut out three each of the PoppyStamps Cheviot Butterfly and Delaney Butterfly dies.  I wanted to go for a more natural tone so I used Kraft card stock for my base layer.  I used My Favorite Things Blueprints 13 for the large stitched rectangle and the curved tag on white card stock.  For some texture, I used an embossing folder from my stash and some green organza ribbon to tie it all together. 

After adhering my butterflies to my tag, I used Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen to add the butterfly bodies. LOVE this new step!

Hope you'll be seeing butterflies outside your windows soon!
