Welcome friends to Day 2 of the Rubbernecker New Release Previews! Thank you so much for your kind comments on yesterdays post. I truly appreciate each and every one!
Today I have this pretty tag to show you that I made using two of the new sets - the funky trees and sentiment are from a set called Bud Trees and the beautiful butterfly is from Butterflies Are Free. Both available tomorrow 3/15!
First I stamped the trees in two different colors - one dark, one light. Then I sponged all the edges with Ranger Distress Dried Marmelade Ink. I stamped the sentiment directly on the tag on a diagonal. Next I stamped the butterfly - cut it out and sponged it with Dried Marmelade ink. I added a little shimmer to it's body and wings with my Spica gold pen (not too obvious here in the pic). To finish off my tag I looped two pieces of wrinkled seam binding through the hole.
This would make a wonderful book mark gift for a friend don't you think??
I'm entering this tag in the Delightful Challenges- to use butterflies.
