Butterfly Trio by Dot Leathbridge
I've been so inspired by the beautiful tags that I see that I've decided to turn my new journal book (it's only a small one) into a tag book. The idea is to have a journal of new ideas and different techniques without having to make a major project.
And there is no time like the present to start it off.
My inspiration for this tag comes through the Butterfly Trio stamp set.
I love how there are the different sizes and you can colour them any way that you want to.
The background is made after watching a you-tube video by Melina Dahl on using the Gelli-plate with Distress Oxides.
The butterflies were simply stamped onto a scrap piece of Distress Oxide background and cut out.
A little extra stamping with oxides using the Round In Circles, A Little Birdie and Merry Magpie finished off the background.
And the words are from the Something Wonderful set. I love how uplifting the words are.
I think that you can make a really effective tag just by using up your scrap card, or experiments, and adding some beautiful stamps over the top.
Oh - and a tip - when your matting may not be quite as straight as you like,
then just add some stitching with a white gel pen, it's a great camouflage ;)
The Rubber Dance Stamps that I've used for this tag are:
Other products are:
acrylic paint for splatters and dots
white gel pen
That's one tag down ... now onto the next one!
