Butterflies Galore

When you start making something do you get that feeling where you know everything is just going to fall into place, well that was the feeling I got when making this tag. Mind you I think it helped because it’s pink and purple.

Used the freebie butterfly from Craft Stamper again (only because it was still on my desk from yesterday) also the dress form again surprise surprise because that was still on my desk from Saturday. The two butterflies with the buttons on were both stamped onto fabric but the third was stamped onto watercolour cardstock. I first inked with various TH DI and then flicked water on … well threw it on actually because the dog jumped up at the exact time I was delicately dropping it. Stamped the butterfly with a Brilliance Ink, Twilight, which is a tri-colour. Waste not want not I say and with the leftovers I stitched it behind the dress form.

Had a play with my sewing machine again and everything on this tag was stitched, didn’t use one bit of glue apart from the little purple rope which has diamond glaze on it.

Used my fave pattern on the sewing machine the leaf which I used to stitch on the linen gauze at the back of the die form, spritzed with glimmer mist first.
