Papillon rubber stamp set by Tim Holtz. I've seen so many great things done with it, but for some reason, I have not been using it much. After pondering the Grungy Monday alcohol ink challenge, I finally had a little 'aha' moment and found the perfect way to use it!
To create my tag, I first stamped the script background from the Papillon set on a plain tag using a Snow Cap Adirondack Dabber. When it was dry, I used my ink blending tool to apply Worn Lipstick Distress ink. I stamped the edges with the flourish from Tim Holtz's Take Flight stamp set, again using Worn Lipstick Distress ink.
here. After the ink dried, I covered over the back with a Snow Cap Dabber, so that it would be more opaque. So pretty!
Sizzix Styled Labels die. I dabbed over it with the Snow Cap Dabber, so soften and hide the text a bit. I attempted to glitter the edge using Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles and Cotton Candy Stickles. I say attempted because I just cannot wait for that stuff to dry, so I ended up smearing it all around, thinking I'd give it a shabby kind of look. Ha! Shabby or sloppy, not sure which! ;-) In the center of my label, I stamped the word 'wish' from Tim's Stuff to Say stamp set. I added a few roses from the Idea-ology Lavish Trimmings and then attached my butterflies using Glossy Accents. The trim along the bottom is dyed seam binding that I gathered using my sewing machine (thanks to my friend Becky for that great tip!) and adhered using Inkssentials Wonder Tape.
I'm also entering my tag in this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show a Word challenge. Speaking of which - did you see my fancy new blinkie? My tag was chosen as one of the Top Three for the Metal challenge! Woo hoo! Make sure you visit their blog and check out the fantastic work by their design team. They are truly amazing.
