Tag Tuesday Challenge #42

Louise's challenge this week is to create a tag with brown and another color. What a great choice pairing brown with another color...


I actually created 3 butterfly tags for this challenge and I am sure the other two will show up in the near future... I decided to use brown and pink together as they are such a beautiful color combination.

The template is from Fiskars. I hand cut the shape.

The music background is a stamp from Stampabilities which I stamped in the center of the butterfly using brown pigment ink. The flowers are are Penny Black stamp and I stamped it twice with a lighter pink and a darker pink.

The edges are distressed using Memento Rich Cocoa. The flower is a flower from Prima Marketing Camelot Roses. I punched the leaves using an EK success punch. The antenna were a pearl accent found in the wedding section of the craft store.

Thanks for stopping by..
