Butterfly Tag

When I saw the Challenge for Simon Says Stamp Challenge was to create a Tag or ACT I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I love making Tags! Having the Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate Die makes it so love love this die! I love Butterflies and Tim's Papillon Stamp set is still one of my favorite go to stamp sets. Pair the stamp set up with his Crowded Attic Papers, Distress Markers and Ranger's Embossing powder and voila! I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to color the Tag, then stamped it using Tim's Flourish stamp and Ranger's Archival Ink in Coffee.  I colored the Butterflies on the Crowded Attic papers with Distress Makers and then stamped and cut out the largest Butterfly in the Stamp set and adhered it with pop dots. I was going for a "specimen" style look without sticking pins in the beautiful Butterfly (ouch!)  I colored the seam binding with Antique Linen Distress Stain, added one of Tim's Idea-ology pins and adhered some vintage lace to the bottom of the Tag.  I'm entering this Tag into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
Thank you for looking!
