A tag for March .

Good morning all and thanks for popping in. 
Today I am going to share a tag with you...
I made this for the tag swap that I am in, and I 
have  to say I love joining in , and it is so exciting when each  tag arrives in the post. 

My colour choice is not my usual...
And it is a result of my lovely friend Dee Paramour who challenged me to use 
Colours that I don’t normally use..

I started with an A4 piece of Kraft card and using my Billy Brayer 
I added some white gesso.

Next I used my sizzix tag die...

I added some blue oxide ink , using my moon mask to give extra detail. 

Then I added some flicks of purple Inca gold...

Next I added some stamping , using this  Jamie’s Wildglowers  stamp set from Hobby Art 

I added some black oxide ink to frame the design . 

And then some added colour using my spectrum Noir pencils. 

On the Kraft card I stamped some butterflies in black Archival ink and then 
Watercoloured then with oxide ink and water. 
These are from the Jamie’s Collection butterflies set from Hobby Art. 
I Fussy cut these out and added them to the tag 

Under the butterflies I added some black thread...
I have been doing this a lot recently and I blame Tracy Evans 
I take my inspiration from her fabulous work .

To finish off the design , I added a few drops of glossy Accents , 
I do love the way that they dry. 

I must admit , I love the way that the colours are so chalky ...and the way they look on the Kraft card...
I will certainly be doing this again..
I hope you like it too...
I am off now workshop prep this morning 
and decorating this afternoon...
Have a great day all

Take care everyone
Much love and hugs

  1. Love the look you have achieved. Hope the decorating goes well.

  2. Wow, love the colour choice on the tag, looks really good layered over white so I will give that a try. Really like the stamps you have used too. Sounds fun swapping tags with people. Xx
