Anything With Wings

Morning Everyone, 

Today is our turn for the pinkies over at Eclectic Ellapu this is my second week with my new Design Team and this weeks theme is Anything With Wings.

I have to say for some reason I had zero inspiration for this challenge.

So instead of making a card, I made a tag. Which is not like me I normally don't venture away from cards or scrapbooks so for me this was a challenge in its self. 

I create the tag by cutting three tags off in half inch increments of my Cricut Machine. 

The largest tag I left white. The middle tag I embossed and coloured with a promarker to match the colour I wanted. The smallest size tag I used my distress inks and a Momento Inkpad to give it the colour, to finish this layer of I used clear and white embossing powder over swirls that I stamped, to give it more detail. 

The butterflies that I have used have also been cut from the Cricut machine, the larges at 1 and half inch and the smallest at 1 inch. 

Well here is the tag.


The Ingredients
3 tag sizes 
Distress Ink - Milled Lavender and Victorian Velvet 
Momento Ink - Sweet Plum
Butterflies Die

Fabulous tags, love your butterflies. I'm with you on usually making cards, but it's funny how you can sometimes get a bit of inspiration from doing things a bit different. Maddy x
