12 tags of 2012 March

Today i´d like to share with you my tag i made for Tim Holtz´12 tags of 2012.

For the background I used 2 different flower stamps because I don´t have the wood stamp Tim used.

I stamped with walnut stain like he did. I colored the tag with vintage photo inkpad and then I distressed the edges of the tag with a nail file.I colored the distressed edges with walnut stain inkpad.

The bigger butterfly is from Tims Grungeboard elements collection.I first embossed the whole Butterfly with vintage photo embossing powder and then glued the snippets from his paperline on it. After it dryed I put glossy accents on the snippets.

For the small butterfly I cut a butterfly from cardboard where I glued on double sided sticky tape. I glued on the snippets and the embossing powder, then embossed. The sticky tape shrunk a bit. But this way the butterfly had a small white edge all around. I inked the edges of both butterflies with walnut stain inkpad.

The sentiment is stamped with Archival ink Jet Black.

The left flower is made from Tims tissue tape with a metal button glued on.

The right flower is made from two Prima pedals that I inked with Glimmer Mists and just a bit of Tims Distress Stain in Walnut. Both pedals are held together with a small TH fastener.

I glued the butterflies on the tag and tied some seembinding on top of the tag and decorated with a Pink Paislee metal butterfly charm.

I forgot to spray it with some glimmer spray, but I think it looks good without it.

I would like to enter this tag on this weeks Simon says stamp and show challenge:
