Mixed Media Tag Butterfly

newchallenge sssm

Hey, lovely crafty friends, welcome back! Let's play the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, we are creating a project "INSPIRED BY MUSIC". I was inspired by the song "Butterfly" by Mariah Carey to create a mixed media tag with many butterflies using Spellbinders Butterflies dies and Prima Flowers Grungy Butterflies.

I started this project with applying Modeling Paste using a palette knife on the size 8 tag for the texture. Then I colored the background using Distress Paints, and drew the outline of the tag using Faber-Castell black PITT pen.

After die cutting the butterflies with Spellbinders butterfly dies and Tim Holtz Grungy Board, I applied Distress Paints on the butterflies. After the paints dry, I stamped the text print on the butterflies with Memento black ink pad and Tim Hotlz rubber stamp.

The butterflies were glued on the tag using Tombow Glue. I layered some metal embellishments on these butterflies.

Some sentiments and words were rubbed on the background to finish off this tag.
