Tag with a Grungy Butterfly by Evelyn

Hello lovely Rubber Dancer, it´s Evelyn here today!
I am sitting in front of my caravan while writing this post. I´m in my holidays in Italy and - call me crazy - I have brought some of my art supplies with me. So I can spend some time in the morning, before I go to the beach, and some time in the evening, creating lovely things 😋😉😊.

This time I made a tag with one of the gorgeous Grungy Butterflies. I really love them and want to use them all the time!

I started with a tag and glued down snippets of old book pages and a lot of diecut gears. Then I added white Gesso and white crackle paint and let it dry.

I sprinkled the Magicals from the Industrial Chic set, starting with the lightest color, and spritzed carefully with water. So I added one after the other color. When the colors were dry, I dabbed white Gesso onto some parts of the colored tag to lighten it up.

Next I stamped the beautiful Grungy Butterflies with black ink, colored them with acrylic paints and gave the big one a coat of glitter with a clear Wink of Stella brush pen.  Then I fussy cut them. In the end I only used the big butterfly.

Now I stamped the Mix a Sentiment stamp randomly over the tag.

To enhance the structure, I rubbed golden wax over the gears. 

For the words I needed, I stamped the Mix a Sentiment stamp on white cardstock, colored the words I wanted to use and cut them out.

I put some brads in the tag and wrapped some rusty wire around.

Now some black and white splatters...

...and then it was time to put everything together. I colored some lace and distressed a piece of cheesecloth before I glued it down with the beautiful butterfly. Now I only had to glue down the words, do some shading, add some glitter here and there, frame the tag with black ink - and it was ready!

Well, now I will enjoy my last days of holidays and I hope you like my tag!
