'W' is for Wings Tag

Really enjoyed doing this tag. The challenge ( UK Stampers Sunday Challenge) was to make a tag in the theme of 'W' is for Wings. The cardstock was plain white and I used Adirondack inkpads and cut'n'dry foam to apply bottle, lettuce, meadow & oregano inks to make a background. These were set with a heat gun. Next I took a swirl stamp (Wendy Rhodes - swirly doodles collection plate) and inked with pesto ink and stamped 4 times as shown. This was again dried with the heat gun. I then took an angel stamp (Paper Artsy - Urban Snapshots Nature 1 plate), inked with Brilliance pearlescent rust ink and stamped bottom right. I used another rubber stamp background from Tanda Stamps (Altered Polka Dot) and inked in Brilliance pearlescent lime applying two uneven areas of dots bottom left and top right - not very noticeable in pic. Next the butterfly blank was stamped in Memories black India Ink onto the big swirl.

I made the two butterflies from Crafty Notions Fusible Films, which were layered and ironed (dry iron) over a butterfly stamp after inking the stamp with white and black inks. The butterflies wings were trimmed off and applied in position with glossy accents only at the wing bases. The words were stamped in Brilliance pearlescent purple ink and the tag finished with a green eyelet and some fibres in green and rust. The tag was finally edged in brown chalk ink.

Hope you like it :-)
