#2


I couldn't resist making another tag using this new Snowflakes are the butterflies stamp from Quietfire Design  and combining it with QFs large butterfly image.  I started with a #8 manila tag, layed on the 12x12 snowflake stencil from Crafter's Workshop, sprayed with Dylusions bubblegum pink and London blue, removed the stencil, blotted the ink and dried the tag.  Using a waterbrush and excess Dylusions ink on my craft sheet I added drips by getting the brush wet with ink and tapping it over my finger to make the ink fly off and onto the tag and dried it. Then I layed the stencil back on and went around the snowflakes with a black pen, removed the stencil and added dots around a couple of the snowflakes.  Distressed the edges of the tag with the Distrezz-it-All, sprayed the excess Dylusions ink on the craft sheet with water and dipped the edges of the tag in it and dried the edges.  I applied white acrylic paint using a sponge to an area large enough for the calligraphy stamp, dried it, and then stamped the image using Archival Ink jet black.  Decided I wanted more in the background and using sequin waste as a stencil/mask added spots of white acrylic paint.  Stamped the butterfly on a scrap of manila cardstock with Distress Ink salty ocean and cut it out.  Again using the sequin waste added a bit of white paint to the center area of the butterfly.  Added more details with both a black pen and a white gel pen and glued just the center of the butterfly to the tag.  Bent up and curved the wings.  Added doodled lines around the edge of the tag and tied some dyed ribbon to the top.
