Paris Tag

This tag is number 24 in the Rolling Recipe Tag Challenge over on the new and upgraded UK Stampers Forum.  This weeks ingredients were:

1. Something shiny
2. Numbers
3. Paris

The tag was cut from white cardstock and a numbers background stamp (PaperArtsy) was inked with onyz black Versafine ink and stamped at the top of the tag.  I then took a swirls stamp (Trimcraft - My Minds Eye) and inked this with Memento ink in summer sky and danube blue and stamped randomly at the base.  The tag was then sponged with cut'n'dry foam and shabby shutters Distress ink.

Next an Eiffel tower stamp from Paperartsy was inked with hydrangea blue Impress dye ink and the image stamped onto more white cardstock which was then cut out.  The image was coloured in the background with Versamagic pretty petunia chalk ink.  This plate was then stuck in place onto the tag as shown.

I had some sticky backed striped metalised border paper and I used this with the Big Shot and a Tim Holtz alterations fanciful flight die to cut out the body and two wings of the butterfly.  The backing was removed and the bits stuck in place.  The spaces in the wings were infilled with diamond Stickles glitter glue.

Final touches were added by applying three lilac heart brads, some flat backed lilac hearts at the bottom and the word 'Paris' which had been coloured with shabby shutters Distress Ink.
