Welcome! Today I'm sharing a pretty spring birthday tag featuring Tim Holtz Tattered Butterfly and Adorned die cuts and Prima Havana papers, flowers and ephemera. A heavy kraft oversized tag is covered with the paper front and back. I put my birthday greeting on the back, since there really wasn't room on the front.
Tattered Butterfly was cut from the designer paper and burlap paper. I cut a couple of flourishes using Adorned Thinlits die and colored with Distress Oxide spray and ink. The flowers, greenery, papers and butterfly get help holding their shape with Prima Sculpture Medium and everything was adhered with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
I was able to coordinate a white gardenia with Abandoned Coral oxide ink and dripped some Distress Spray Stain in the same color on the background. Cracked Pistachio oxide ink tones down the bright green of the leaves and I also splashed some of that on the background. Edges were blended with Ground Espresso ink.
I hope you like my tag as much as I liked making it! It was fun creating something with no agenda, but I'd still like to share with a couple of my favorite challenge blogs. Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and blessings! Sara Emily
