It is Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey today, where the DT create Tim Holtz inspired tags. Oh and it's the winners post too from Jenny's 'Just Stain It' challenge.
I started my tag with a distress stain background - I did a few of these a while ago and can't actually remember what colours I used - except it was blues, browns and probably some evergreen bough. I laid Tim's doily stencil over and spritzed with water to create some bleaching. The background was finished with the Papillon butterlies and some script (is this all hidden now!).
To embellish I took some bits off my desk. A sheet of stars I had embossed with clear embossing paste over an already dry embossed sheet. I cut my heart and added more colour with distress inks. I had some frameworks lying around too - again coloured to match the theme.
My butterflies are stamped and punched (Stampin up products). My favourite thing at the moment is to layer them and staple them together.
That's about it - a bit of splattering and edging and a few punched stars.
Thanks for looking and do check out the other tags at A Vintage Journey.
