The Golden Flight




Here is a tag I made recently.  The background technique is a simple Distress ink on craft sheet - water spritz - rub tag onto the ink & water face down - dry process.  I used faded jeans Distress ink.  When dry I made a mica and water mix with gold Perfect Pearls in a mini mister and sprayed over the surface to add a blotchy gold shimmer. This was allowed to dry naturally.




The butterfly is a Marianne design diecut made from plain white heavy paper which was painted with turquoise Viva Precious Metal Colour.  Some gold Stickles was added to the butterfly to embellish.

I then stamped the seedhead (Paper Bag Studios) at the bottom of the tag in Versafine onyx black ink and added some rub-on black flourishes on to the top half of the right side of the tag.






The engraved brass plate was added with glossy accents as shown and the tag edged with blue iris chalk ink.  The butterfly was then added with a glue dot.






Final touch was to add some metallic gold ribbon held in place with a staple.  Love the blingy effect on this tag.
