I made about 3 backgrounds for this and then waited too long and my last sheet ended up sticking to my gelli plate. I peeled it off and soaked my gelli plate to get it clean. I decided I liked the torn texture on the background and used it as the base for my tag.
I stamped the flower using black ink and colored with watercolor pencils. I stamped the sentiment and ended up embossing it in black embossing powder. I then stamped the flourishes around the edges along with pretty trim. I highlighted everything with a touch of white gel pen.
I stamped the butterflies on another scrap of the backround and colored them to coordinate.
