smARTworks - Butterfly Tag

I made this tag using the set called BLISS from smARTworks. It is an amazingly large butterfly that is magnificant. And there are so many things you can do with it!! You can see various projects made by all the Design Team members HERE for the cookie challenge. That is where Susan sends us all the same stamp set to see what we all come up with. This was one other project I did with it. (I forgot to take a picture of the actually card I submitted before I mailed it to Susan...oops!)
I was clearly inspired by t!m Holtz!! I used a tag but I also used his distress inks and added some drops of water to create that increadible background! I stamped the butterfly onto some Creative Imaginations paper that had various tones of yellow and orange. Believe it or not, there was only one butterfly stamped to create this tag. I simply adheared part of the image onto the tag, cut it, then adheared the rest of the image on the other end of the tag and trimmed any extra off. The sentiment was stamped and a little doodling was added with a black marker. Finally, I sponged around the edge of the tag and added some hemp.
Supplies: Stamps-Bliss (smARTworks); Paper-Whisper White (Stampin' Up!), designer paper (Creative Imaginations); Ink-Basic Black (Stampin' Up!), China Doll, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain (Ranger); Other-orange hemp, water misting bottle, black marker.
Thanks for dropping in for a visit.

Alchohol inks are the perfect medium for butterflies! How fun that you divided the image for the tag -- it's a personalized DP!
