Butterflies

I made this tag to go with a gift that I have just sent out in the post.



Everything I send out this year has a butterfly theme included in the gift somewhere.

I have used the 'Crafty Individuals' stamp CI 175 stamped with Memento ink onto plain white paper, cut out and then adhered to thick white cartridge paper. Using my colour water pencils I made up a blue colourwash and painted the background to look like sky and then coloured the butterflies wings in deep yellow. Cut and punched to make a tag. The sentiment was done in word and printed off onto yellow paper and the lace and blue crochet cord were from my stash.


Entering into the following challenges.



Aud Sentiments: Use a sentiment to make someone smile.






A Spoonful of Sugar: Create a Tag.



Blog challenge Garden: Butterflies.




By the Cute & Girly: Things with Wings.
