Butterfly Tag #2 and Tag #3

Here are the other butterflies... inspired by Louise's challenge this week to create a tag with brown and one other color.

I tend to create multiple versions of any project I do. So the butterfly I created before came from this butterfly. I wasn't sure I liked the mix of stamps I used on the butterfly. After I finished the first one I came back to this butterfly.
I put it on the tag after the butterfly was completed. The second butterfly was inspired by the idea of using the medallion flower stamp on a glimmer mist background. I really love the effect of the petals as butterfly wings but got stuck on the body of the butterfly because of it's size. Sometimes when I take pictures of something it loses something in the translation. This is one of those. Other times the card looks better in the photo. But definitely the softness of this didn't translate into the picture.

The stamp used on the bigger butterfly is the Hero Arts Medallion and the background is glimmer mist taffy.

The smaller butterfly used a variety of stamps from Stampabilities, Penny Black, and Hero Arts.

The inks were Memento Rose Bud, StaZon Fuschia, Memento Rich Cocoa, and Versafine Vintage Sepia.

The tag shape was traced from a Hero Arts Clear tag.

Hope you have a lovely day!

  5. Well the first tag and butterfly is just gorgeous Sue. Really, really pretty. Unfortunately I can't get the second one to load so I'm missing out on what I just know is another beauty.

    I'll have another try later.
