My tag has the blues

Crafty Calendar-things with wings
Delightful Challenges-bloom
Crafty Ribbons-anything with ribbon
Simply Create Too-no digis or stamped images
Crafty Catz-B is for (blue, butterflies)
Totally PaperCrafts-tag it

I did a tag in the same way I did my canvas the other day. I cut a tag from some packaging, think it was from my husbands miniatures he paints. I started with the letters, I used Tim Holtz letterpress letters. I used the letters without the squares last time, but this time I them they way he intended. I love the way it makes them look. I added some dimensional chipboard sticker butterflies and flowers. Then I added some gems to be the leaves. I had this row of stars, I cut it in two to be a trail from the butterflies. I painted everything with gesso, then sprayed with Pastel blue from Recollections. To keep up the stars, I added this star ribbon and a small piece of dotted sheer ribbon to tie it. 

Tim Holtz Grunge Block-tip I got this at Tuesday Morning for 2.99
