Butterfly Birthday



A birthday tag for our granddaughter made back in August.  The background is Distress Paints.  Put paint on craft sheet, spray with some water, run tag through the paint and swirl around; if needed, spray more water on tag to help paint blend, but not too much.  Add white paint through punchinella.  Stamp background images (Studio 490) with Archival Ink. Stamp butterfly (Chocolate Baroque) in black and emboss with clear powder.  Add coloring with Sharpie markers and a white gel pen.  Stamp sentiment with Archival jet black.  Stencil lines (Studio 490).  Distress edges and add white paint.  Add white pen stitching.  Finish it off with an Idea-ology metal journey piece.

I think the color looks a little truer with the picture taken against black cardstock.



The back is Distress paint rubbed on with the dabber top.  Dots of DP added around the edges by just pressing the dabber top down.  White pen doodles.  Scripture (Our Daily Bread Designs) stamped with Ranger's Archival Ink jet black.  



And a set of jewelry as part of her gift.  Vintaj blanks and  butterflies embossed in one of their folders, and a large filigree butterfly, all colored with Vintaj Patinas, dried, sanded, and coated with the Glaze.  Add some beads, ear wires, jump rings and ball chain for a fun set.

Lovely tag and beautiful jewelry. I've been trying to declutter and avoid buying new stamps and supplies. You're making it very hard to resist Chocolate Baroque stamps, especially the butterfly, and Distress Paints.
