Botanical Print Tag

I've something quite different from my recent projects to share with you today.  I found a pack of Papermania Kraft tags in my stash and thought I'd do a tag design for a change.

Firstly I prepared the Kraft base tag using some Antique Linen and Picket Fence Distress Stains plus a Rhubarb Stalk Memento dewdrop ink pad dragged around the edges.  Using a TCW 'Splats' mask and Memento Paris Dusk ink, I created a random design, then applied some Viva 3D Glitter Gel in Gold randomly in patches over the base layer.

Using the Papermania Botanical Print stamp set, I stamped the script image on to the tag using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and the flower image using Paris Dusk Memento at the bottom.  I also stamped the scalloped butterfly and script stamp on to a scrap of Kraft cardstock with Rich Cocoa and added a little extra colour with Copics.  Inking just the largest butterly on another of the stamps with Paris Dusk Memento ink, I stamped this onto a scrap of Kraft cardstock. 

I then cut out the scalloped image and butterfly and attached them to the tag after tying a length of fancy thread around and through a small charm.   Finally I added a little more of the 3D glitter gel on the butterfly and scalloped layer to finish off with a bit of sparkle.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project, thanks for dropping by to check out my Blog.
