It seems like ages since I got to get my little fingers INKY. But here's a little something for you to try.
At Inspiration Emporium we are working on a theme....Packaging!
The Butterflies are cut from packaging you get from all the wonderful products you buy. Here I used Tim's new Mini Butterflies Movers and Shapers die.
Then I used Alcohol Inks to color the backs...add permanent black pen to the body and Aqua Rhinestones from Kaiser on the front. I LOVE Kaiser's Rhinestones!!!!
It's extremely hard to shoot a good picture in the Midwest gloom recently. No sun today...just rain and more rain. So this is shot under and Ott light trying not to get any glare off the plastic...difficult for me.
The Large Manila tag is sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mists....Turquoise and Perfect Copper. I used the cutout section of the plastic to make a stencil, so the butterflies are shadows on the tag. They do not show up well here...sorry.
You have to have a very light background for the butterflies to show up well, in my opinion.
An old favorite stamp from Nature's Moments is used for the background with Jet Black Archival Ink. You can see the stamps right through the butterflies.
The Alcohol Inks I used on the Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool with Felt were:
Cranberry, Bottle, Sunshine Yellow, and Wild Plum. I started with the yellow first and added layers until I got the look I wanted. Just Play!
I also added this to a black chipboard cutout using Tim's Tag die. A Plaquette over some ribbon and a bow at the top.
The pen marks just add something extra. I'm sorry, I don't know who made the little words stamp...if you do, let me know.
