Dragons Tag and Simon says challenge
Didnt mean to combine these 2 challenges they just sort of happened! For the tag - I used Ranger Distress inks milled lavendar and weathered wood swished it on the craft mat - sprayed using a mini mister then mopped up the ink in 3 layers as Mr Holtz recommends. I have then used a mini mister with distress reinker dusty concord and pewter perfect pearls mixed with water - the shimmer doesnt catch on the picture at all! I have then used a stamp from the urban tapestry Tim Holtz range and over stamped again with dusty concord. I then used the paper distresser to rough up the edges and inked those with the dusty concord too. The butterfly is made with fusible fibres and a butterfly stamp inked with archival ink. This is my first go at this technique after watching it at a show.
The word stamp - got this from an online stamp company and not seen it anywhere else - cant remember the name though so if you can do give me a shout! Id like this on my tombstone as it sums up my life beautifully I am def the caterpillar not the butterfly LOL.
