Saturday Spotlight - Slick

The latest challenge at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential was to use something "slick" on our cards - like slick cardstock, embellishments, acetate paper, crystal lacquar, etc. I knew instantly I wanted to do T!m Holtz' technique where he puts inks on photo paper and squirts the blobs with a can of air to make splats! You can see his tutorial HERE - he'll explain it much better than I ever could!! So I made this tag to put on a gift for my mom (who is feeling down these days). I then thought it could be a focal point for a card ... hence the stamped black butterflies behind it. What do you think....keep it as a tag to attach to a gift or add it to a card??? Supplies: stamps - Butterfly (Rubber Stampede), Paper Tray (Papertrey Ink); Paper - Whisper White, More Mustard (both Stampin' Up!),red is from my scrap bin; Ink - Tempting Turquoise, More Mustard, Real Red reinkers (Stampin' Up!), Graphite Black (Tsukineko); Other - Copics (Y13 and YR04 to add some shading to the butterfly), Dazzling Diamonds (SU!), black marker to make antenna, can of air, Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), chipboard, white grograin ribbon (SU! - which was colored with the two above Copic markers to match), Colluzle. Thanks for dropping in! Donelda

That's a tough call, Donelda. The b&w butterfly background looks great with the colorful background. But it's also a great stand-alone tag. Not much help, am I?

What a fab way to 'spotlight'
I love this card.
