A Late May Tag

Okay ... so I'm a little late with the May 2013 tag.  But this one was so much fun that I had to post it tonight.  I  love Tim Holtz's remnant rubs.  I used Worn Lipstick, Broken China and Mustard Seed Distress Stain to create the backdrop for them on this tag.  The colors reminded me of butterflies, thus the theme.  I used Distress Markers and a water brush to color in my large background stamp.

My favorite thing about the tag though is the Ideology Enamel Tag.  The alcohol inks make fabulous color options.  I'm so glad I took time to finish this tag.

What an absolutely gorgeous take on the May tag - so glad you decided to share it, even in June! The colours are lovely, and perfect for the nature stamping of the butterflies and plants - right up my alley! Thank you so much for your visit and comment - greatly appreciated.

Wow Mary Elizabeth!!! Better late than never, right? Your tag is gorgeous! Love the colors and the very "artsy" feel of it. Beautiful work! I'm so glad that you liked my squash card. Yep...I love steampunk quirky and fun to play with. Glad you enjoyed the tutorial and the pictures to see how I wired the gears. Sometimes those posts can be a bit long...but hopefully it lets people know how I did something and give them the "courage" to experiment and play. <3 Candy
